PREFACE 



THIS book is the second in a series of three hymnals intended to 
cover the needs of the Church through the whole range of its 
public worship. The first, The Hymnal, was prepared as a complete manual 
of praise, covering especially the Sunday services, but including also every 
side of church worship and work; the second, The Chapel Hymnal, is 
prepared for those who prefer a smaller book for use in prayer meetings, 
young people's societies, and other social services ; and the last of the series 
is to cover the services of the Sabbath- school. 

The Chapel Hymnal consists principally of those hymns in The Hymnal 
which are best adapted for use in devotional meetings and of such tunes 
as can be used to good advantage on such occasions ; and ordinarily the 
association of hymn and tune has been retained. In addition there have 
been included in this book some standard hymns and tunes reserved for 
this use when The Hymnal was prepared, together with some fresh selec- 
tions of a popular character and a number of the more desirable "Gospel 
Hymns." 

The pages of the book are so arranged as to provide a choice of tunes 
in the case of a large number of the hymns. 

It is the usage of many of our churches to sing the Amen at the close 
of each hymn, and the proper chords are provided for any who may wish 
to use them. 

In the choice of material for this book the Committee has had the 
advantage of the counsel and cooperation of the Rev. George M. Boynton, 
D. D., and M. C. Hazard, Ph. D., who have represented the Congregational 
Sunday-School and Publishing Society, to the end that the book may be 
adapted for introduction and use in the churches of both denominations. 



preface 

The Committee would acknowledge the favor of those who freely 
granted the use of copyright hymns and tunes j especially of Messrs. 
Houghton, Mifflin & Co., for the hymns of Dr. Holmes and Mr. YVhittier; 
the Rev. Robert Lowry, D. D., for No. 255 j and Messrs. E. P. Dutton 
& Co. and Mr. Lewis H. Redner, for No. 76. 

April 20, 1898. 



NOTE 

As far as possible the hymns are printed as their authors wrote them. When 
any changes have been adopted, the fact has invariably been noted beneath 
the hymn. The dates set to the tunes are the dates of first publication. The 
dates set to the hymns are the earliest dates obtainable, ordinarily that of their 
composition, in some cases necessarily that of their first publication. Where two 
dates are given, they indicate that of the original form of the hymn and that 
of the author's revised text used in this book. The abbreviation " publ." in- 
dicates that the date of writing is unknown, and that the date of publication 
is posthumous. The letter c. [circa) before a date is used where exact certainty 
is unobtainable. Where dates, either of hymns or tunes, are altogether wanting, 
the dates of the author's or composer's birth and death are given in brackets, 
e.g. (18 16-1893), or where living, that of his birth only, e.g. (1838- ), or the 
date of death when that alone is known, e.g. ( -1850).

OUR FATHER which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name; Thy king- 
dom come; Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven; give us this day 
our daily bread j and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors ; 
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil ; for thine is 
the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. amen. 

SCJjc Ectx Commantimente 

GOD spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought 
thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 
I. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. 

II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any 
thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water 
under the earth : thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them : for I 
the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the 
children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me ; and showing 
mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments. 

III. Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain ; for the Lord 
will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain. 

IV. Remember the Sabbath-day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and 
do all thy work : but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God ; in it 
thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, 
nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates ; for in 
six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and 
rested the seventh day : wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath-day and hallowed it. 

V. Honor thy father and thy mother : that thy days may be long upon the land 
which the Lord thy God giveth thee. 
VI. Thou shalt not kill. 
VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery. 
VIII. Thou shalt not steal. 
IX. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. 
X. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neigh- 
bor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor 
any thing that is thy neighbor's. 

HEAR also the words of our Lord Jesus, how He saith : Thou shalt love the 
Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This 
is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it : Thou shalt 
love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and 
the prophets. 

EJje Apostles* ffitart 

I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth : 
And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord ; who was conceived by the Holy 
Ghost ; born of the Virgin Mary ; suffered under Pontius Pilate ; was crucified, 
dead, and buried ; He descended into hell ; * the third day He rose again from the 
dead ; He ascended into heaven ; and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father 
Almighty ; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Ghost ; the holy Catholic Church ; the Communion of 
Saints ; the Forgiveness of sins ; the Resurrection of the body ; and the Life ever- 
lasting. Amen. 

* f, e. Continued in the state of the dead and under the power of death until the third day.

Improve thy talent with due care ; 
For the great day thyself prepare. 

3 By influence of the light Divine 
Let thy own light to others shine ; 
Reflect all heaven's propitious rays 
In ardent love and cheerful praise. 

4 Wake and lift up thyself, my heart, 
And with the angels bear thy part, 



Who all night long, unwearied, sing 
High praise to the Eternal King. 

5 All praise to Thee, who safe hast kept, 
And hast refreshed me whilst I slept: 
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake, 
I may of endless light partake. 

6 Direct, control, suggest, this day, 
All I design, or do, or say ; 

That all my powers, with all their might, 
In Thy sole glory may unite.

2 Day by day provide us food, 

For from Thee come all things good 
Strength unto our souls afford 
From Thy living Bread, O Lord ! 



4 Quickened by the Spirit's grace 
All Thy holy will to trace, 
While we daily search Thy word, 
Wisdom true impart, O Lord ! 

Be our Guard in sin and strife ; 5 When the sun withdraws his light, 
Be the Leader of our life ; When we seek our beds at night, 

Lest like sheep we stray abroad, Thou, by sleepless hosts adored, 

Stay our wayward feet, O Lord ! Hear the prayer of faith, O Lord ! 

6 Praise we, with the heavenly host, 
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost ; 
Thee would we with one accord 
Praise and magnify, O Lord ! 

Anon. (Latin.) Tr. " O. B. C." Recast by Earl Nelson, 1864 



2 (WARWICK) CM. 

LORD, in the morning Thou shalt hear 
My voice ascending high ; 

To Thee will I direct my prayer, 
To Thee lift up mine eye : 

1 Up to the hills, where Christ is gone 
To plead for all His saints, 
Presenting at His Father's throne 
Our songs and our complaints. 

; Thou art a God before whose sight 
The wicked shall not stand ; 



Sinners shall ne'er be Thy delight, 
Nor dwell at Thy right hand. 

But to Thy house will I resort, 
To taste Thy mercies there ; 

I will frequent Thy holy court, 
And worship in Thy fear. 

O may Thy Spirit guide my feet 
In ways of righteousness ; 

Make every path of duty straight 
And plain before my face.

My wearied eyelids gently steep, 

Be my last thought, how sweet to rest 
For ever on my Saviour's breast.

Abide with me when night is nigh,

Have spurned to-day the voice Divine, 
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin ; 
Let him no more lie down in sin. 



5 Watch by the sick ; enrich the poor 
With blessings from Thy boundlessstore; 
Be every mourner's sleep to-night, 
Like infants' slumbers, pure and light.

Ere through the world our way we take, 
Till in the ocean of Thy love 
We lose ourselves in heaven above.

1 ALL praise to Thee,my God,thisnight, 3 O may my soul on Thee repose, 
For all the blessings of the light ; And with sweet sleep mine eyelids close ; 

Keep me, O keep me, King of kings, Sleep that may me more vigorous make 



Beneath Thy own almighty wings. 

2 Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son, 
The ill that I this day have done ; 
That with the world, myself, and Thee 
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. 

5 O when shall I in endless day 
For ever chase dark sleep away, 
And hymns with the supernal choir 
Incessant sing, and never tire ! 

Bishop Thomas Ken 



To serve my God when I awake. 

4 When in the night I sleepless lie, 
My soul with heavenly thoughts supply; 
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest, 
No powers of darkness me molest.

So fade within our heart 
The hopes in earthly love and joy

Slowly the bright stars, one by one,

2 Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day; 
Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away ; 
Change and decay in all around I see ; 

Thou who changest not, abide with me. 

3 I need Thy presence every passing hour ; 

What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power? 
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be ? 
Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me. 

4 I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless : 
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness. 
Where is death's sting? where, grave, thy victory? 

1 triumph still, if Thou abide with me. 

5 Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes ; 
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies: 
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee : 
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

O Jesus, make their darkness light, 
And save me through the coming

Or sleep in death shall I, 
And he, my wakeful tempter, 

Triumphantly shall cry, 
"He could not make their darkness 

light, 
Nor guard them through the hours of 
night." 

5 Be Thou my soul's Preserver, 

O God, for Thou dost know 
How many are the perils 

Through which I have to go. 
Lover of men, O hear my call, 
And guard and save me from them all.

Let evil thoughts and spirits flee before us ; 
Till morning cometh, watch, O Master, o'er us ; 
In soul and body Thou from harm defend us, 
Thine angels send us. 

Let holy thoughts be ours when sleep o'ertakes us; 
Our earliest thoughts be Thine when morning wakes us ; 
All day serve Thee, in all that we are doing 
Thy praise pursuing. 

As Thy beloved, soothe the sick and weeping, 
And bid the prisoner lose his griefs in sleeping ; 
Widows and orphans, we to Thee commend them, 
Do Thou befriend them. 

We have no refuge, none on earth to aid us, 
Save Thee, O Father, who Thine own hast made us ;

Who seek Thee only.

1 WELCOME, sweet day of rest, 

That saw the Lord arise : 
Welcome to this reviving breast, 
And these rejoicing eyes. 

2 The King Himself comes near, 

And feasts His saints to-day ; 
Here we may sit, and see Him here, 
And love, and praise, and pray. 



3 Here we come Thy Name to 
praise, 
Let us feel Thy presence near ; 
May Thy glory meet our eyes, 
While we in Thy house ap- 
pear : 
Here afford us, Lord, a taste 
Of our everlasting feast. 

4 May Thy gospel's joyful sound 

Conquer sinners, comfort saints ; 
May the fruits of grace abound, 

Bring relief for all complaints : 
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove 
Till we join the Church above. 

Rev. John Newton, 1774: alt. 



3 One day amidst the place 

Where my dear God hath been, 
Is sweeter than ten thousand days 
Of pleasurable sin. 

4 My willing soul would stay 

In such a frame as this, 
And wait to hail the brighter day 
Of everlasting bliss.

2 Come, bless the Lord, whose love assigns 4 This heavenly calm within the breast 
So sweet a rest to wearied minds, Is the dear pledge of glorious rest 
Provides an antepast of heaven, ^'hich for the Church of God remains, 
And gives this day the food of seven. The end of cares, the end of pains. 

3 O that our thoughts and thanks may rise, 5 In holy duties let the day, 
As grateful incense, to the skies ; In holy pleasures, pass away : 

And draw from heaven that sweet repose How sweet a Sabbath thus to spend, 
Which none but he that feels it knows. In hope of one that ne'er shall end.

When we disclose our wants in prayer, 

May we our wills resign ; 
And not a thought our bosom share 

Which is not wholly Thine. 

Let faith each meek petition fill, 

And waft it to the skies ; 
And teach our hearts 'tis goodness still 

That grants it, or denies.

Inhabitest the humble mind ; To strengthen faith, and sweeten care, 

Such ever bring Thee where they come, To teach our faint desires to rise, 
And going, take Thee to their home. And bring all heaven before our eyes. 



3 Dear Shepherd of Thy chosen few,

Here to our waiting hearts proclaim 
The sweetness of Thy saving Name.

And make this house Thy home ; 
Descend with all Thy gracious powers, 
O come, great Spirit, come. 

2 Come as the light ; to us reveal 

Our emptiness and woe ; 
And lead us in those paths of life 
Where all the righteous go. 

I Corneas the fire ; and purge our hearts, 
Like sacrificial flame : 



Let our whole soul an offering be 
To our Redeemer's Name. 

4 Come as the dove ; and spread Thy 

The wings of peaceful love ; [wings, 
And let Thy Church on earth become 
Blest as Thy Church above.

Make a lost world Thy home ; 
Descend with all Thy gracious powers,

i STILL with Thee, O my God, 3 With Thee amid the crowd 

I would desire to be, That throngs the busy mart, 

By day, by night; at home, abroad, To hear Thy voice, where time's is loud, 
I would be still with Thee. Speak softly to my heart. 



2 With Thee when dawn comes in 
And calls me back to care, 
Each day returning to begin 
With Thee, my God, in prayer. 



4 With Thee when day is done, 
And evening calms the mind ; 
The setting as the rising sun 
With Thee my heart would find. 



5 With Thee, in Thee, by faith 
Abiding, I would be ; 
By day, by night, in life, in death, 
I would be still with Thee.

GOD moves in a mysterious way 

His wonders to perform ; 
He plants His footsteps in the sea, 

And rides upon the storm. 

Deep in unfathomable mines 

Of never-failing skill 
He treasures up His bright designs, 

And works His sovereign will. 

Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take ; 
The clouds ye so much dread 



Are big with mercy, and shall break 
In blessings on your head. 

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, 
But trust Him for His grace ; 

Behind a frowning providence 
He hides a smiling face. 

Blind unbelief is sure to err, 
And scan His work in vain ; 

God is His own Interpreter, 
And He will make it plain.

WHEN all Thy mercies, O my God, 

My rising soul surveys, 
Transported with the view, I'm lost 

In wonder, love, and praise. 

: Unnumbered comforts to my soul 
Thy tender care bestowed, 
Before my infant heart conceived 
From whom those comforts flowed. 

; When worn with sickness,oft hast Thou 
With health renewed my face ; 
And, when in sins and sorrows sunk, 
Revived my soul with grace. 



4 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts 

My daily thanks employ ; 
Nor is the least a cheerful heart 
That tastes those gifts with joy. 

5 Through every period of my life 

Thy goodness I'll pursue ; 
And after death, in distant worlds, 
The glorious theme renew. 

6 Through all eternity to Thee 

A joyful song I'll raise ; 

For O, eternity's too short 

To utter all Thy praise. 

Joseph Addison, 1712

4 Lord of all life, below, above, 
Whose light is truth, whose warmth is 

love, 
Before Thy ever-blazing throne 
We ask no lustre of our own. 

5 Grant us Thy truth to make us free, 
And ki ndling hearts that burn for Thee; 
Till all Thy living altars claim 

One holy light, one heavenly flame. 

Oliver Wendell Holmes, 1848 



Awake, asleep, at home, abroad, 
I am surrounded still with God. 

4 Amazing knowledge, vast and great ! 
What large extent, what lofty height ! 
My soul, with all the powers I boast, 
Is in the boundless prospect lost. 

5 O may these thoughts possess my 

breast, 
Where'er I rove, where'er I rest : 
Nor let my weaker passions dare 
Consent to sin, for God is there. 

Rev. Isaac Watts, 1719 



2 Sun of our life, Thy quickening ray 
Sheds on our path the glow of day ; 
Star of our hope, Thy softened light 
Cheers the long watches of the night. 

3 Our midnight is Thy smile withdrawn; 
Our noontide is Thy gracious dawn ; 
Our rainbow arch, Thy mercy's sign; 
All, save the clouds of sin, are Thine. 



L. M.

1 LORD, Thou hast searched and seen 

me through; 
Thine eye commands with piercing view 
My rising and my resting hours, 
My heart and flesh, with all their powers. 

2 My thoughts, before they are my own, 
Are to my God distinctly known ; 
He knows the words I mean to speak, 
Ere from my opening lips they break. 

3 Within Thy circling power I stand ; 
On every side I find Thy hand :

2 Our years are like the shadows 

On sunny hills that lie, 
Or grasses in the meadows 

That blossom but to die ; 
A sleep, a dream, a story 

By strangers quickly told, 
An unremaining glory 

Of things that soon are old. 



3 O Thou, who canst not slumber, 

Whose light grows never pale, 
Teach us aright to number 

Our years before they fail ; 
On us Thy mercy lighten, 

On us Thy goodness rest, 
And let Thy Spirit brighten 

The hearts Thyself hast blessed.

1 MY soul, repeat His praise 
Whose mercies are so great, 

Whose anger is so slow to rise, 
So ready to abate. 

2 High as the heavens are raised 
Above the ground we tread, 

So far the riches of His grace 
Our highest thoughts exceed. 

3 His power subdues our sins, 
And His forgiving love, 

Far as the east is from the west, 
Doth all our guilt remove. 



4 The hill of Zion yields 

A thousand sacred sweets, 
Before we reach the heavenly fields, 
Or walk the golden streets. 

5 Then let our songs abound, 
And every tear be dry ; 

We're marching through Emmanuel's 
ground 
To fairer worlds on high. 

Rev. Isaac Watts, 1707: verse 2, 1. 3, alt. 



4 The pity of the Lord 

To those that fear His Name 
Is such as tender parents feel ; 
He knows our feeble frame. 

5 Our days are as the grass, 
Or like the morning flower ; 

If one sharp blast sweep o'er the field, 
It withers in an hour. 

6 But Thy compassions, Lord, 
To endless years endure ; 

And children's children ever find 
Thy words of promise sure.

Demand perpetual songs of praise.

"Worthy the Lamb that died," they 
"To be exalted thus :" [cry, 

"Worthy the Lamb," our lips reply, 
"For He was slain for us." 

Jesus is worthy to receive 
Honor and power Divine ; 

And blessings, more than we can give, 
Be, Lord, for ever Thine. 



Let all that dwell above the sky, 
And air, and earth, and seas, 

Conspire to lift Thy glories high, 
And speak Thine endless praise. 

The whole creation join in one, 
To bless the sacred Name 

Of Him that sits upon the throne, 
And to adore the Lamb.

O FOR a thousand tongues to sing 

My dear Redeemer's praise, 
The glories of my God and King, 

The triumphs of His grace. 

My gracious Master and my God, 

Assist me to proclaim, 
To spread through all the earth abroad, 

The honors of Thy Name. 



M. 



Jesus, the Name that charms our fears, 
That bids our sorrows cease ; 

'Tis music in the sinner's ears, 
'Tis life, and health, and peace. 

He breaks the power of reigning sin, 
He sets the prisoner free ; 

His blood can make the foulest clean, 
His blood availed for me. 



5 He speaks, and, listening to His voice, 
New life the dead receive ; 
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice ; 
The humble poor believe.

W T orn by saints before us, 

Journeying on to God ; 
Leaving all behind us, 

May we hasten on, 
Backward never looking 

Till the prize is won. 

6 Higher, then, and higher, 

Bear the ransomed soul, 
Earthly toils forgetting, 

Saviour, to its goal ; 
Where in joys unthought of 

Saints with angels sing, 
Never weary, raising 

Praises to their King.

3 I'd sing the characters He bears, 
And all the forms of love He wears, 

Exalted on His throne :

I would to everlasting days 

Make all His glories known.

My ransom from the dreadful guilt 

Of sin, and wrath Divine: 
I'd sing His glorious righteousness, 
In which all-perfect, heavenly dress 
My soul shall ever shine.

And I shall see His face ; 
Then with my Saviour, Brother, Friend, 
A blest eternity I '11 spend, 

Triumphant in His grace.

And still He is nigh — His presence we have : 
The great congregation His triumph shall sing, 
Ascribing salvation to Jesus, our King. 

3 Salvation to God, who sits on the throne ! 
Let all cry aloud, and honor the Son : 
The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim, 

Fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb. 

4 Then let us adore, and give Him His right, 
All glory and power, and wisdom and might, 
All honor and blessing, with angels above, 
And thanks never ceasing, and infinite love.

2 King of glory, reign for ever, 



Thine an everlasting crown ; 
Nothing from Thy love shall sever 

Those whom Thou hast made Thine 
own : 
Happy objects of Thy grace, 
Destined to behold Thy face. — ref. 



3 Saviour, hasten Thine appearing ; 

Bring, O bring the glorious day, 
When, the awful summons hearing, 

Heaven and earth shall pass away : 
Then, with golden harps, we'll sing, 
" Glory, glory to our King ! " — ref.

1 AWAKE, and sing the song 

Of Moses and the Lamb ; 
AYake every heart and every tongue 
To praise the Saviour's Name. 

2 Sing of His dying love ; 

Sing of His rising power; 
Sing how He intercedes above 
For those whose sins He bore. 

William Hammond, 1745: alt. 



Sing on your heavenly way, 
Ye ransomed sinners, sing ; 

Sing on, rejoicing every day 
In Christ the Eternal King. 

4 Soon shall ye hear Him say, 

''Ye blessed children, come: " 

Soon will He call you hence away, 

And take His wanderers home.

1 ALL praise to Thee, Eternal Lord, 
Clothed in a garb of flesh and blood ; 
Choosing a manger for Thy throne, 
While worlds on worlds are Thine alone. 

2 Once did the skies before Thee bow ; 
A Virgin's arms contain Thee now : 
Angels who did in Thee rejoice 
Now listen for Thine infant voice. 

3 A little Child, Thou art our Guest, 
That weary ones in Thee may rest ; 



Far as the curse is found. 

4 He rules the world with truth and grace, 
And makes the nations prove 
The glories of His righteousness, 
And wonders of His love. 

Rev. Isaac Watts, 1719 



Forlorn and lowly is Thy birth, 

That we may rise to heaven from earth. 

4 Thou comest in the darksome night 
To make us children of the light, 

To make us, in the realms Divine, 
Like Thine own angels round Thee shine. 

5 All this for us Thy love hath done ; 
By this to Thee our love is won : 
For this we tune our cheerful lays, 
And shout our thanks in ceaseless praise.

2 For Christ is born of Mary ; 

And gathered all above, 
While mortals sleep, the angels keep 

Their watch of wondering love. 
O morning stars, together 

Proclaim the holy birth ; 
And praises sing to God the King, 

And peace to men on earth. 

3 How silently, how silently, 

The wondrous gift is given ! 

So God imparts to human hearts 

The blessings of His heaven. 



No ear may hear His coming, 

But in this world of sin, 
Where meek souls will receive Him still, 

The dear Christ enters in. 

4 O holy Child of Bethlehem, 

Descend to us, we pray ; 
Cast out our sin, and enter in, 

Be born in us to-day. 
We hear the Christmas angels 

The great glad tidings tell ; 
O come to us, abide with us, 

Our Lord Emmanuel. 

Bishop Phillips Brooks, i8<«$ 



2 Listen to the wondrous story, 

Which they chant in hymns of joy: 
" Glory in the highest, glory ; 
Glory be to God Most High ! 



" Christ is born, the great Anointed ; 

Heaven and earth His glory sing : 
Glad receive whom God appointed 

For your Prophet, Priest, and King. 



3 "Peace on earth, good- will from heaven, 5 " Hasten, mortals, to adore Him ; 
Reaching far as man is found ; Learn His Name, and taste His joy; 

Souls redeemed, and sins forgiven; Till in heaven you sing before Him, 

Loud our golden harps shall sound. Glory be to God Most High !"

1 AS with gladness men of old 
Did the guiding star behold ; 
As with joy they hailed its light, 
Leading onward, beaming bright ; 
So, most gracious God, may we 
Evermore be led to Thee. 

2 As with joyful steps they sped 
To that lowly manger-bed, 
There to bend the knee before 
Him whom heaven and earth adore 
So may we with willing feet 

Ever seek Thy mercy-seat. 



3 As they offered gifts most rare 
At that manger rude and bare ; 
So may we with holy joy, 
Pure, and free from sin's alloy, 
All our costliest treasures bring, 
Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King. 

4 Holy Jesus, every day 
Keep us in the narrow way ; 
And, when earthly things are past, 
Bring our ransomed souls at last 
Where they need no star to guide, 
W'here no clouds Thy glory hide.

LORD, Thou in all things like wast 
made 

To us, yet free from sin ; 
Then how unlike to us, O Lord, 

Replies the voice within. 

Our faith is weak ; O Light of Light, 
Clear Thou our clouded view ; 

That Son of Man, and Son of God, 
We give Thee honor due. 



4 O give us hearts to love like Thee 

Like Thee, O Lord, to grieve 
Far more for others' sins than all 
The wrongs that we receive. 

5 One with Thyself, may every eye 

In us, Thy brethren, see 
That gentleness and grace that spring 
From union, Lord, with Thee. 

Sir Edward Denny, Bart., 1839 



3 O Son of Man, Thyself hast proved 

Our trials and our tears ; 
Life's thankless toil and scant repose, 
Death's agonies and fears. 

4 O Son of God, in glory raised, 

Thou sittest on Thy throne : 
Thence, by Thy pleadings and Thy 
grace, 
Still succoring Thine own. 



5 Brother and Saviour, Friend and Judge ! 
To Thee, O Christ, be given 
To bind upon Thy crown the names 
Most blest in earth and heaven.

Help us, through good report and

Our daily cross to bear ; 
Like Thee, to do our Father's will, 

Our brethren's griefs to share. 

Let grace our selfishness expel,

1 O MEAN may seem this house of clay, 4 But not this fleshly robe alone 

Yet 'twas the Lord's abode ; Shall link us, Lord, to Thee ; 

Our feet may mourn this thorny way, Not only in the tear and groan 

Yet here Emmanuel trod. Shall the dear kindred be. 



2 This fleshly robe the Lord did wear, 

This watch the Lord did keep, 

These burdens sore the Lord did bear, 

These tears the Lord did weep. 

3 Our very frailty brings us near 

Unto the Lord of heaven ; 
To every grief, to every tear, 
Such glory strange is given. 



5 We shall be reckoned for Thine own 

Because Thy heaven we share, 
Because we sing around Thy throne, 
And Thy bright raiment wear. 

6 O mighty grace, our life to live, 

To make our earth Divine : 
O mighty grace, Thy heaven to give, 
And lift our life to Thine.

In work that keeps faith sweet and strong, 
In trust that triumphs over wrong ;

1 'TIS midnight; and on Olive's brow 
The star is dimmed that lately shone : 

'Tis midnight ; in the garden, now, 
The suffering Saviour prays alone. 

2 'Tis midnight; and, from all removed, 
Emmanuel wrestles lone with fears: 

E'en the disciple that He loved 
Heeds not his Master's grief and tears. 



Early hasten to the tomb 

Where they laid His breathless clay : 

All is solitude and gloom ; 

Who hath taken Him away ? 

Christ is risen ! He meets our eyes. 

Saviour, teach us so to rise. 

James Montgomery, 1820 (text of 1853) 



3 'Tis midnight; and, for others' guilt, 
The Man of Sorrows weeps in blood : 

Yet He that hath in anguish knelt 
Is not forsaken by His God. 

4 'Tis midnight; from the heavenly plains 
Is borne the song that angels know : 

Unheard by mortals are the strains 
That sweetly soothe the Saviour's woe.

Upon that cross of Jesus 

Mine eye at times can see 
The very dying form of One 

Who suffered there for me : 
And from my smitten heart with tears 

Two wonders I confess, — 
The wonders of His glorious love 

And my own worthlessness. 



I take, O cross, thy shadow 

For my abiding-place : 
I ask no other sunshine than 

The sunshine of His face ; 
Content to let the world go by, 

To know no gain nor loss, 
My sinful self my only shame, 

My glory all the cross.

Was it for crimes that I had done 
He groaned upon the tree ! 

Amazing pity ! Grace unknown ! 
And love beyond degree ! 

Well might the sun in darkness hide, 

And shut his glories in, 
When He, the mighty Maker, died 

For man the creature's sin. 



4 Thus might I hide my blushing face 

While His dear cross appears; 
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness, 
And melt my eyes to tears.

2 In vain with stone the cave they barred ; 
In vain the watch kept ward and guard : 
Majestic from the spoiled tomb, 

In pomp of triumph Christ is come. 

3 He binds in chains the ancient foe ; 
A countless host He frees from woe, 
And heaven's high portal open flies, 
For Christ has risen, and man shall rise. 

4 And all He did, and all He bare, 
He gives us as our own to share ; 

103 (NARENZA) S. M. 

1 BEYOND the starry skies, 
Far as the eternal hills, 

There, in the boundless world of light, 
Our great Redeemer dwells. 

2 Around Him angels fair, 
In countless armies, shine ; 

And ever, in exalted lays, 
They offer songs Divine. 

3 "Hail, Prince of life!" they cry, 
"Whose unexampled love 

Moved Thee to quit these glorious realms 
And royalties above. ' ' 

Cento, based on Rev 



And hope and joy and peace begin, 
For Christ has won, and man shall win. 

5 O Victor, aid us in the fight, [light : 
And lead through death to realms of 
We safely pass where Thou hast trod ; 
In Thee we die to rise to God. 

6 Thy flock, from sin and death set free, 
Glad alleluias raise to Thee ; 

And ever with the heavenly host 
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. 

Cento, based on Rev. John M. Neale, 1854 



4 And when He stooped to earth, 
And suffered rude disdain, 

They cast their honors at His feet, 
And waited in His train. 

5 They saw Him on the cross, 
While darkness veiled the skies, 

And when He burst the gates of death, 
They saw the Conqueror rise. 

6 They thronged His chariot-wheels, 
And bore Him to His throne ; 

Then swept their golden harps, and sang, 
"The glorious work is done." 

. James Fanch, 1776, and Rev. Daniel Turner, 1794

[ LIGHT of the lonely pilgrim's heart, 
Star of the coming day, 
Arise, and with Thy morning beams 
Chase all our griefs away. 

2 Come, blessed Lord, bid every shore 
And answering island sing 
The praises of Thy royal Name, 
And own Thee as their King. 

5 Lord, Lord, Thy fair creation groans, 
The air, the earth, the sea,

To judge the nations at Thy bar ; 
And tell me, Lord, shall I be there 
To meet a joyful doom ? 

3 Then, Saviour, then my soul re- 
ceive, 
Transported from the vale, to live 

And reign with Thee above, 
Where faith is sweetly lost insight, 
And hope in full, supreme delight, 
And everlasting love. 

Rev. Charles Wesley, 1749 : verse 1, 11. 5, 6, alt. 



In unison with all our hearts, 
And calls aloud for Thee. 

4 Come, then, with all Thy quickening 

With one awakening smile, [power, 
And bid the serpent's trail no more 
Thy beauteous realms defile. 

5 Thine was the cross, with all its fruits 

Of grace and peace Divine : 
Be Thine the crown of glory now, 
The palm of victory Thine.

Let Thy bright beams arise ; 
Dispel the darkness from our minds, 
And open all our eyes. 

2 Cheer our desponding hearts, 

Thou heavenly Paraclete ; 
Give us to lie with humble hope 
At our Redeemer's feet. 

3 Revive our drooping faith, 

Our doubts and fears remove, 
And kindle in our breasts the flame 
Of never-dying love. 



4 Convince us of our sin, 

Then lead to Jesus' blood, 
And to our wondering view reveal 
The secret love of God. 

5 'Tis Thine to cleanse the heart, 

To sanctify the soul, 
To pour fresh life on every part, 
And new-create the whole. 

6 Dwell therefore in our hearts, 

Our minds from bondage free ; 
Then we shall know, and praise, and 
The Father, Son, and Thee, [love

Taught by Thee, we covet most, 
Of Thy gifts at Pentecost, 

Holy, heavenly love. 

2 Faith, that mountains could remove, 
Tongues of earth or heaven above, 
Knowledge, all things, empty prove, 

Without heavenly love. 

3 Love is kind, and suffers long ; 
Love is meek, and thinks no wrong ; 
Love than death itself more strong ; 

Therefore, give us love. 



4 Faith will vanish into sight ; 
Hope be emptied in delight ; 

Love in heaven will shine more bright 
Therefore, give us love. 

5 Faith and hope and love we see, 
Joining hand in hand, agree ; 
But the greatest of the three, 

And the best, is love. 

6 From the overshadowing 

Of Thy gold and silver wing, 
Shed on us who to Thee sing 
Holy, heavenly love.

2 Bless Thou the truth, dear Lord, 
To me — to me — 
As Thou didst bless the bread 
By Galilee ; 



126 (ORTONVILLE) C. M. 

1 THE Spirit breathes upon the word, 

And brings the truth to sight; 
Precepts and promises afford 
A sanctifying light. 

2 A glory gilds the sacred page, 

Majestic, like the sun : 
It gives a light to every age ; 
It gives, but borrows none. 

3 The Hand that gave it still supplies 

The gracious light and heat : 



Then shall all bondage cease, 

All fetters fall ; 
And I shall find my peace, 

My All in all. 

Mary Ann Lathbury, 1877 



His truths upon the nations rise ; 
They rise, but never set. 

4 Let everlasting thanks be Thine 

For such a bright display 
As makes a world of darkness shine 
With beams of heavenly day. 

5 My soul rejoices to pursue 

The steps of Him I love, 

Till glory break upon my view 

In brighter worlds above.

4 Nor shall Thy spreading gospel rest 
Till through the world Thy truth has 

run ; 
Till Christ has all the nations blest 
That see the light, or feel the sun. 

5 Great Sun of Righteousness, arise ; 
Bless the dark world with heavenly- 
light : 

Thy gospel makes the simple wise, 
Thy laws are pure,Thy judgments right. 

Rev. Isaac Watts, 1719 



2 The rolling sun, the changing light, 
And nights and days, Thy power con- 
fess ; 

But the blest volume Thou hast writ 
Reveals Thy justice and Thy grace. 

3 Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise 
Round the whole earth, and never 

stand ; 
So when Thy truth began its race, 
It touched and glanced on every land.

1 JESUS, with Thy Church abide, 



Be her Saviour, Lord, and Guide, 
While on earth her faith is tried : 
We beseech Thee, hear us. 

2 Keep her life and doctrine pure ; 
Grant her patience to endure, 
Trusting in Thy promise sure : 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 



4 May her lamp of truth be bright, 
Bid her bear aloft its light 
Through the realms of heathen night : 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 

5 May she holy triumphs win, 
Overthrow the hosts of sin, 
Gather all the nations in : 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 



3 Save her love from growing cold, 6 May she soon all glorious be, 
Make her watchmen strong and bold, Spotless and from wrinkle free, 
Fence her round, Thy peaceful fold : Pure and bright and worthy Thee : 
We beseech Thee, hear us. We beseech Thee, hear us.

2 Lo, such the child whose early feet 

The paths of peace have trod ; 
Whose secret heart, with influence 
sweet, 
Is upward drawn to God. 

3 By cool Siloam's shady rill 

The lily must decay ; 
The rose that blooms beneath the hill 
Must shortly fade away : 



4 And soon, too soon, the wintry hour 

Of man's maturer age 
Will shake the soul with sorrow's power 
And stormy passion's rage. 

5 O Thou, whose infant feet were found 

Within Thy Father's shrine, 
Whose years, with changeless virtue 
crowned, 
Were all alike Divine ; 



6 Dependent on Thy bounteous breath, 
We seek Thy grace alone 
In childhood, manhood, age, and death, 
To keep us still Thine own. 

Bishop Reginald Heber, 1812 (Text of 1827) 

134 (BROCKLESBURY) 8. 7. 8. 7. 

1 SAVIOUR, who Thy flock art feeding, 3 Never, from Thy pasture roving, 

With the shepherd's kindest care, Let them be the lion's prey ; 

All the feeble gently leading, Let Thy tenderness, so loving, [way. 

While the lambs Thy bosom share; Keep them through life's dangerous 

2 Now, these little ones receiving, 4 Then, within Thy fold eternal, 



Fold them in Thy gracious arm ; 
There, we know, Thy word believing, 
Only there secure from harm. 



Let them find a resting-place, 
Feed in pastures ever vernal, 
Drink the rivers of Thy grace.

Be this the purpose of my soul,

To yield to His supreme control, 
And in His kind commands rejoice.

I will remember Thee. I must remember Thee ; 



2 Thy body, broken for my sake, 

My bread from heaven shall be ; 
Thy testamental cup I take, 
And thus remember Thee.

Or there Thy conflict see, 

Thine agony and bloody sweat, 

And not remember Thee ? 



5 Remember Thee, and all Thy pains, 

And all Thy love to me : 
Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains, 
Will I remember Thee.

And mind and memory flee, 
When Thou shalt inThy kingdom come,

2 I am not worthy to be thought Thy child, 

Nor sit the last and lowest at Thy board ; 
Too long a wanderer and too oft beguiled, 
I only ask one reconciling word. 

3 One word from Thee, my Lord, one smile, one look, 

And I could face the cold, rough world again ; 
And with that treasure in my heart could brook 
The wrath of devils and the scorn of men. 

4 I hear Thy voice ; Thou bidd'st me come and rest ; 

I come, I kneel, I clasp Thy pierced feet ; 
Thou bidd'st me take my place, a welcome guest 
Among Thy saints, and of Thy banquet eat. 

5 My praise can only breathe itself in prayer, 

My prayer can only lose itself in Thee ; 
Dwell Thou for ever in my heart, and there, 

Lord, let me sup with Thee ; sup Thou with me.

Thou savest those that on Thee call; Where'er our changeful lot is cast ; 
To them that seek Thee Thou art good, Glad when Thy gracious smile we see, 
To them that find Thee All in all. Blest when our faith can hold Thee fast.

And does Thy cup with love o'erflow? Before unwilling hearts displayed ? 
Thither be all Thy children led, Was not for you the Victim slain ? 
And let them all its sweetness know. Are you forbid the children's bread? 

2 Hail, sacred feast which Jesus makes, 4 O let Thy table honored be, 

Rich banquet of His flesh and blood ! And furnished well with joyful guests : 
Thrice happy he who here partakes And may each soul salvation see 
That sacred stream, that heavenly food ! That here its sacred pledges tastes.

How blessed are our eyes 
That see this heavenly light ! 

Prophets and kings desired it long, 
But died without the sight. 

The watchmen join their voice, 
And tuneful notes employ ; 

Jerusalem breaks forth in songs, 
And deserts learn the joy.

Copyright, 1895, by The Trustees of The Presbyterian Board of Publication and Sabbath-School Work 



2 Strong in the Lord of hosts, 

And in His mighty power, 
Who in the strength of Jesus trusts 
Is more than conqueror. 

3 Stand then in His great might, 

With all His strength endued ; 
But take, to arm you for the fight, 
The panoply of God : 



4 That, having all things done, 

And all your conflicts passed, 
Ye may o'ercome through Christ alone, 
And stand entire at last 

5 From strength to strength go on ; 

Wrestle, and fight, and pray ; 
Tread all the powers of darkness down, 
And win the well-fought day. 



6 Still let the Spirit cry 

In all His soldiers, "Come," 
Till Christ the Lord descends from 
And takes the conquerors home.

(LABAN) S. M. 



YE servants of the Lord, 

Each in his office wait, 
Observant of His heavenly word, 

And watchful at His gate. 

Let all your lamps be bright, 
And trim the golden flame ; 
Gird up your loins, as in His sight, 
For awful is His Name. 

Watch: 'tis your Lord's command, 
And while we speak, He's near; 



Rev. Charles Wesley, 1749 



Mark the first signal of His hand, 
And ready all appear. 

4 O happy servant he 

In such a posture found ! 
He shall his Lord with rapture see, 
And be with honor crowned. 

5 Christ shall the banquet spread 

With His own royal hand, 
And raise that favorite servant's head 
Amidst the angelic band.

O 'tis not in grief to harm me 

While Thy love is left to me;

3 Take, my soul, thy full salvation, 
Rise o'er sin and fear and care; 
Joy to find in every station 

Something still to do or bear ; 
Think what Spirit dwells within thee, 

What a Father's smile is thine, 
What a Saviour died to win thee : 
Child of heaven, shouldst thou re-

2 If you cannot cross the ocean, 

And the heathen lands explore, 
You can find the heathen nearer, 

You can help them at your door. 
If you cannot give your thousands, 

You can give the widow's mite ; 
And the least you give for Jesus 

Will be precious in His sight. 

3 If you cannot speak like angels, 

If you cannot preach like Paul, 
You can tell the love of Jesus, 
You can say He died for all. 



If you cannot rouse the wicked 
With the judgment's dread alarms, 

You can lead the little children 
To the Saviour's waiting arms. 

Let none hear you idly saying, 

"There is nothing I can do," 
While the souls of men are dying, 

And the Master calls for you : 
Take the task He gives you gladly, 

Let His work your pleasure be ; 
Answer quickly when He calleth, 

"Here am I; send me, send me."

2 O Christian brothers, glorious 

Shall be the conflict's close ; 
The cross hath been victorious, 

And shall be o'er its foes : 
Faith is our battle-token ; 

Our Leader all controls ; 
Our trophies, fetters broken j 

Our captives, ransomed souls. 



3 Not unto us, Lord Jesus, 

To Thee all praise be due, 
Whose blood-bought mercy frees us, 

Has freed our brethren too. 
Not unto us : in glory 

The angels catch the strain, 
And cast their crowns before Thee 

Exultingly again.

But, Jesus, draw Thou nearer, 

And shield my soul from sin.

Lead on, O King Eternal, 

Till sin's fierce war shall cease, 
And Holiness shall whisper 

The sweet Amen of peace ; 
For not with swords loud clashing, 

Nor roll of stirring drums, 
But deeds of love and mercy, 

The heavenly kingdom comes. 



3 Lead on, O King Eternal : 

We follow, not with fears; 
For gladness breaks like morning 

W r here'er Thy face appears ; 
Thy cross is lifted o'er us ; 

We journey in its light : 
The crown awaits the conquest ; 

Lead on, O God of might.

And that cannot fail. — ref.

Upon the crystal pavement, down 

At Jesus' pierced feet, 
Joyful, I'll cast my golden crown, 

And His dear Name repeat. 

O precious cross ! O glorious crown ! 

O resurrection day ! 
Ye angels, from the stars flash down, 

And bear my soul away. 



2 How happy are the saints above. 

Who once went sorrowing here ; 
But now they taste unmingled love, 
And joy without a tear. 

3 The consecrated cross I'll bear 

Till death shall set me free ; 
And then go home my crown to wear, 
For there's a crown for me.

Sounds forth the ancient word, 
' ' More reapers for whi te harvest fields, 
More laborers for the Lord." 

2 We hear the call ; in dreams no

In selfish ease we lie, 
But, girded for our Father's work, 
Go forth beneath His sky. 



3 Give me a faithful heart, 

Likeness to Thee, 
That each departing day 

Henceforth may see 
Some work of love begun, 
Some deed of kindness done, 
Some wanderer sought and won, 

Something for Thee. 

Rev. S. Dryden Phelps, 186a 

3 Where prophets' word, and martyrs' 

blood, 
And prayers of saints were sown, 
We, to their labors entering in, 
Would reap where they have strown. 

4 O Thou whose call our hearts has 

To do Thy will we come ; [stirred, 
Thrust in our sickles at Thy word, 
And bear our harvest home.

2 Work, for the night is coming : 

Work through the sunny noon 
Fill brightest hours with labor, 

Rest comes sure and soon ; 
Give every flying minute 

Something to keep in store ; 
Work, for the night is coming, 

When man works no more. 



3 Work, for the night is coming : 

Under the sunset skies, 
While their bright tints are glowing, 

Work, for daylight flies ; 
Work till the last beam fadeth, 

Fadeth to shine no more ; 
Work while the night is darkening, 

When man's work is o'er.

1 LORD, lead the way the Saviour went, 

By lane and cell obscure ; 
And let love's treasures still be spent, 
Like His, upon the poor. 

2 Like Him, through scenes of deep 

distress, 
Who bore the world's sad weight, 
We, in their crowded loneliness, 
Would seek the desolate. 



3 For Thou hast placed us side by side 

In this wide world of ill ; 
And, that Thy followers may be 
tried, 
The poor are with us still. 

4 Mean are all offerings we can make ; 

Yet Thou hast taught us, Lord, 
If given for the Saviour's sake, 
They lose not their reward.

2 O joy, to see that Master dear ! 
O joy, to live with Him so near ! 
O joy, that gentle voice to hear ! 

3 O more than joy, to that dear Lord, 
In purest, deepest love adored, 
All lowly service to afford ! 

4 O Jesus, throned above the height, 
Adoring troops of angels bright 
Wait on Thy bidding day and night 



5 Thy sacred form we cannot see, 

Yet, Lord, these hands may render Thee 
Each lowly act of charity. 

6 For while 'mid want and woe we move, 
And tend Thy poor in gentle love, 
We minister to Thee above. 

7 O gracious Jesus, we confess 

Our poor cold love, our nothingness : 
Yet Thou wilt own, and Thou wilt bless.

[ THE morning light is breaking, 

The darkness disappears ; 
The sons of earth are waking 

To penitential tears; 
Each breeze that sweeps the ocean 

Brings tidings from afar 
Of nations in commotion, 

Prepared for Zion's war. 



See heathen nations bending 

Before the God we love, 
And thousand hearts ascending 

In gratitude above ; 
While sinners, now confessing, 

The gospel call obey, 
And seek the Saviour's blessing, 

A nation in a day. 



Blest river of salvation, 
Pursue thy onward way ; 

Flow thou to every nation, 
Nor in thy richness stay : 

Stay not till all the lowly 
Triumphant reach their home ; 

Stay not till all the holy 

Proclaim, " The Lord is come.

Part of His host hath crossed the flood, 
And part is crossing now.

And greet the blood-besprinkled bands

Their triumph to His death.

His zeal inspired their breast ; 
And, following their incarnate God, 
Possess the promised rest.

For His own pattern given, 
While the long cloud of witnesses 
Show the same path to heaven.

Great gifts Thou broughtest me ; 
What have I brought to Thee ?

My years for Thee be spent ; 

World-fetters all be riven, 

And joy with suffering blent : 

Thou gav'st Thyself for me, 

I give myself to Thee.

2 The dying thief rejoiced to see 

That fountain in his day; 

And there have I, as vile as he, 

Washed all my sins away. 

3 Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood 

Shall never lose its power 



Till all the ransomed Church 
of God 
Be saved, to sin no more. 

4 E'er since by faith I saw the 
stream 
Thy flowing wounds supply, 
Redeeming love has been my 
theme, 
And shall be till I die. 



Then in a nobler, sweeter song 
I'll sing Thy power to save, 
When this poor lisping, stammering 



Lies silent in the grave. 

William Cowper,

NOT all the blood of beasts 

On Jewish altars slain, 
Could give the guilty conscience peace, 

Or wash away the stain : 

But Christ, the heavenly Lamb, 

Takes all our sins away, 
A sacrifice of nobler name 

And richer blood than they. 



3 My faith would lay her hand 

On that dear head of Thine, 
While like a penitent I stand, 
And there confess my sin. 

4 My soul looks back to see 

The burdens Thou didst bear, 

When hanging on the cursed tree, 

And hopes her guilt was there.

2 There's a wideness in God's mercy, 

Like the wideness of the sea ; 
There's a kindness in His justice, 

Which is more than liberty. 
There is welcome for the sinner, 

And more graces for the good ; 
There is mercy with the Saviour, 

There is healing in His blood ; 



3 There is plentiful redemption 

In the blood that has been shed j 
There is joy for all the members 

In the sorrows of the Head. 
If our love were but more simple, 

We should take Him at His word ; 
And our lives would be all sunshine 

In the sweetness of our Lord.

2 Take up thy cross; let not its weight 

Fill thy weak soul with vain alarm ; 
His strength shall bear thy spirit up, 
And brace thy heart, and nerve 
thine arm. 

3 Take up thy cross; nor heed the shame, 

And let thy foolish pride be still; 
Thy Lord refused not e'en to die 
Upon a cross, on Calvary's hill. 



4 Take up thy cross, then, in His strength, 

And calmly sin's wild deluge brave; 
'Twill guide thee to a better home, 
It points to glory o'er the grave. 

5 Take up thy cross, and follow on, 

Nor think till death to lay it down ; 
For only he who bears the cross 
May hope to wear the glorious crown.

1 BEHOLD ! a Stranger's at the door ; 
He gently knocks, has knocked before ; 
Has waited long, is waiting still : 
You treat no other friend so ill. 

2 But will He prove a friend indeed? 
He will, the very Friend you need ; 
The Man of Nazareth, 'tis He, 
With garments dyed at Calvary. 



3 O lovely attitude ! He stands 
With melting heart and laden hands : 
O matchless kindness ! and He shows 
This matchless kindness to His foes. 

4 Rise, touched with gratitude Divine; 
Turn out His enemy and thine, 

That soul-destroying monster, sin, 
And let the heavenly Stranger in. 



5 Admit Him ere His anger burn ; 
His feet, departed, ne'er return: 
Admit Him, or the hour's at hand 
When at His door denied you'll stand.

2 O Jesus, Thou art knocking ; 

And lo, that hand is scarred, 
And thorns Thy brow encircle, 

And tears Thy face have marred : 
O love that passeth knowledge, 

So patiently to wait ! 
O sin that hath no equal, 

So fast to bar the gate ! 



3 O Jesus, Thou art pleading 

In accents meek and low, 
" I died for you, My children, 

And will ye treat Me so?" 
O Lord, with shame and sorrow 

We open now the door ; 
Dear Saviour, enter, enter, 

And leave us nevermore.

Although I oft have wandered, 

It is my Father's home.

SALVATION ! O the joyful sound ; 

'Tis pleasure to our ears, 
A sovereign balm for every wound, 

A cordial for our fears. 

Buried in sorrow and in sin, 
At hell's dark door we lay ; 



Come to the Saviour, all, 

Whate'er your burdens be ; 
Hear now His loving call, 

" Cast all your care on Me.' 
Come, and for every grief 

In Jesus you will find 
A sure and safe relief, 

A loving Friend, and kind.

Pass in, pass in, and be the Bridegroom's guest: 
Room, room, still room ! O enter, enter now. 

4 Yet there is room : still open stands the gate, 
The gate of love ; it is not yet too late : 
Room, room, still room ! O enter, enter now. 

5 Louder and sweeter sounds the loving call ; 
Come, lingerer, come ; enter that festal hall : 
Room, room, still room ! O enter, enter now. 

6 Ere night that gate may close, and seal thy doom ; 
Then the last low, long cry, " No room, no room !" 
No room, no room ! O woeful cry, " No room !" 

Rev. Horatius Bonar, 1879

Weak and weary and alone 

When the vale of death we tread, 
Then be all Thy mercy shown, 

Then be all Thy love displayed ; 
Guard us in that darksome hour, 

Lead us to the land of rest, 
Where, secure from Satan's power, 

We may lie upon Thy breast. 

Rev. Albert E. Evans, 1867 



In the midst of sin and strife, 

In the depths of mortal woe, 
Teach us, Lord, to live a life 

Meet for sojourners below. 
Though the road be oft-times dark, 

Though the feet in weakness stray, 
Lead us, Saviour, as the ark 

Led Thy chosen on their way.

In the pure glory of that holy land ? 
Before the whiteness of that throne appear ? 

Yet there are hands stretched out to draw me near. 

3 The while I fain would tread the heavenly way, 
Evil is ever with me day by day ; 

Yet on mine ears the gracious tidings fall, 

" Repent, confess, thou shalt be loosed from all." 

4 It is the voice of Jesus that I hear ; 

His are the hands stretched out to draw me near, 
And His the blood that can for all atone, 
And set me faultless there before the throne. 

5 Yea, Thou wilt answer for me, righteous Lord ; 
Thine all the merits, mine the great reward ; 
Thine the sharp thorns, and mine the golden crown ; 
Mine the life won, and Thine the life laid down.

2 Lord, I confess to Thee 

Sadly my sin ; 
All I am tell I Thee, 

All I have been : 
Purge Thou my sin away, 
Wash Thou my soul this day ; 

Lord, make me clean. 



3 Faithful and just art Thou, 

Forgiving all ; 
Loving and kind art Thou 

When poor ones call : 
Lord, let the cleansing blood, 
Blood of the Lamb of God, 

Pass o'er my soul. 

4 Then all is peace and light 

This soul within ; 
Thus shall I walk with Thee, 

The loved Unseen ; 
Leaning on Thee, my God, 
Guided along the road, 

Nothing between. 

Rev. Horatius Bonar, 1866

1 O Thou that hear'st when sinners cry, 
Though all my crimes before Thee lie, 
Behold them not with angry look, 
But blot their memory from Thy book. 

2 Create my nature pure within, 
And form my soul averse to sin ; 
Let Thy good Spirit ne'er depart, 
Nor hide Thy presence from my heart. 



3 I cannot live without Thy light, 
Cast out and banished from Thy sight 
Thy holy joys, my God, restore, 
And guard me, that I fall no more. 

4 A broken heart, my God, my King, 
Is all the sacrifice I bring ; 

The God of grace will ne'er despise 
A broken heart for sacrifice.

3 Jesus my Shepherd is ; 

'Twas He that loved my soul, 
' Twas He that washed me in His blood, 

'Twas He that made me whole ; 
'Twas He that sought the lost, 

That found the wandering sheep, 
'Twas He that brought me to the fold, 

'Tis He that still doth keep. 



4 I was a wandering sheep, 

I would not be controlled ; 
But now I love my Shepherd's voice, 

I love, I love the fold. 
I was a wayward child, 

I once preferred to roam ; 
Hut now 1 love my Father's voice, 

I love, I love His home.

3 Thou earnest, O Lord, 
With the living word 
That should set Thy people free ; 
But with mocking scorn, 
And with crown of thorn, 
They bore Thee to Calvary : 

O come to my heart, Lord Jesus, 
Thy cross is my only plea. 



4 When heaven's arches shall ring, 
And her choirs shall sing, 
At Thy coming to victory. 

Let Thy voice call me home, 
Saying, "Yet there is room. 
There is room at My side for thee." 

And my heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus, 
When Thou comest and callest for me.

All my trust on Thee is stayed, 

All my help from Thee I bring ;

Hoping against hope I stand, 

Dying, and behold I live ! 



4 Thou, O Christ, art all I want ; 

More than all in Thee I find : 
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, 

Heal the sick, and lead the blind. 
Just and holy is Thy Name ; 

I am all unrighteousness ; 
False and full of sin I am, 

Thou art full of truth and grace. 

5 Plenteous grace with Thee is found, 

Grace to cover all my sin ; 
Let the healing streams abound ; 

Make and keep me pure within. 
Thou of life the Fountain art, 

Freely let me take of Thee ; 
Spring Thou up within my heart, 

Rise to all eternity.

" Behold, I freely give 
The living water ; thirsty one, 

Stoop down and drink, and live." 
I came to Jesus, and I drank 

Of that life-giving stream ; 
My thirst was quenched, my soul re- 

And now I live in Him. [vived,

" I am this dark world's Light ; 
Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise,

In Him my Star, my Sun ; 
And in that light of life I'll walk, 

Till travelling days are done.

Freely offered up, 
Though the flesh may falter,

2 Look down on me, for I am weak ; 
I feel the toilsome journey's length; 

Thine aid omnipotent I seek : 
Thou art my Strength. 

3 I am bewildered on my way, 
Dark and tempestuous is the night ; 

O send Thou forth some cheering ray : 
Thou art my Light. 

4 I hear the storms around me rise ; 
But when I dread the impending shock, 



My spirit to the refuge flies : 
Thou art my Rock. 

5 Standing alone on Jordan's brink, 
In that tremendous latest strife, 

Thou wilt not suffer me to sink : 
Thou art my Life. 

6 Thou wilt my every want supply, 
E'en to the end, whate'er befall; 

Through life, in death, eternally, 
Thou art my All.

1 MY God and Father, while I stray 
Far from my home in life's rough way 
O teach me from my heart to say, 
Thy will be done. 



4 If but my fainting heart be blest 
With Thy sweet Spirit for its guest, 
My God, to Thee I leave the rest ; 
Thy will be done. 



2 Though dark my path and sad my lot, 5 Renew my will from day to day; 
Let me be still and murmur not, Blend it with Thine, and take away 

Or breathe the prayer Divinely taught, All that now makes it hard to say, 
Thy will be done. Thy will be done. 



3 If thou shouldst call me to resign 
What most I prize, it ne'er was mine ; 
I only yield Thee what was Thine : 
Thy will be done. 



6 Then, when on earth I breathe no more 
The prayer oft mixed with tears before, 
I'll sing upon a happier shore, 
Thy will be done. 

Charlotte Elliott, 1834

My ransomed soul He leadeth, 

And, where the verdant pastures grow, 
With food celestial feedeth.

But yet in love He sought me,

1 I AM trusting Thee, Lord Jesus, 

Trusting only Thee; 
Trusting Thee for full salvation, 
Great and free. 

2 I am trusting Thee for pardon ; 

At Thy feet I bow; 

For Thy grace and tender mercy, 

Trusting now. 

3 I am trusting Thee for cleansing 

In the crimson flood; 
Trusting Thee to make me holy 
By Thy blood. 



Thy rod and staff my comfort still, 
Thy cross before to guide me. 

5 Thou spread'st a table in my sight; 
Thy unction grace bestoweth ; 

And O what transport of delight 
From Thy pure chalice fioweth. 

6 And so through all the length of days 
Thy goodness faileth never : 

Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise 
Within Thy house for ever. 

Rev. Sir Henry W. Baker, Bart., 1868 



4 I am trusting Thee to guide me; 

Thou alone shalt lead, 
Every day and hour supplying 
All my need. 

5 I am trusting Thee for power, 

Thine can never fail ; 
Words which Thou Thyself shalt give me 
Must prevail. 

6 I am trusting Thee, Lord Jesus; 

Never let me fall; 
I am trusting Thee for ever, 
And for all.

My heart shall find delight in praise, 
Or seek relief in prayer. 

5 When gladness wings my favored hour, 
Thy love my thoughts shall fill ; 

Resigned, when storms of sorrow lower, 
My soul shall meet Thy will. 

6 My lifted eye, without a tear, 
The lowering storm shall see; 

My steadfast heart shall know no fear; 
That heart will rest on Thee, 

Helen M. Williams, 1786 



4 Or, if some darker lot be good, 
O teach us to endure 

The sorrow, pain, or solitude, 
That make the spirit pure. 

5 Christ by no flowery pathway came ; 
And'we, His followers here, 

Must do Thy will and praise Thy Name, 
In hope, and love, and fear. 

6 And, till in heaven we sinless bow, 

And faultless anthems raise, 
O Father, Son, and Spirit, now 
Accept our feeble praise. 

Rev. William J. Irons, 1844 



2 Thy love the powers of thought be- 

stowed ; 
To Thee my thoughts would soar-: 
Thy mercy o'er my life has flowed; 
That mercy I adore. 

3 In each event of life, how clear 
Thy ruling hand I see ; 

Each blessing to my soul more dear 
Because conferred by Thee. 

4 In every joy that crowns my days, 
In every pain I bear, 

263 (BEATITUDO) C. M. 

1 FATHER of Love, our Guide and 
O lead us gently on, [Friend, 

Until life's trial time shall end, 
And heavenly peace be won. 

2 We know not what the path may be 
As yet by us untrod ; 

But we can trust our all to Thee, 
Our Father and our God. 

3 If called, like Abraham's child, to climb 
The hill of sacrifice, 

Some angel may be there in time; 
Deliverance shall arise :

1 O GOD of Bethel, by whose hand 
Thy people still are fed, 
Who through this weary pilgrimage 
Hast all our fathers led, 



3 Through each perplexing path of life 
Our wandering footsteps guide ; 
Give us each day our daily bread, 
And raiment fit provide. 



2 Our vows, our prayers, we now present 4 O spread Thy covering wings around 

Before Thy throne of grace ; Till all our wanderings cease, 

God of our fathers, be the God And at our Father's loved abode 

Of their succeeding race. Our souls arrive in peace. 

5 Such blessings from Thy gracious hand 
Our humble prayers implore ; 
And Thou shalt be our chosen God, 
And portion evermore.

For nothing changes here.

My heart may low be laid ; 
But God is round about me,

Rev. Isaac Watts, 1719 



3 My times are in Thy hand ; 

Why should I doubt or fear ? 
A Father's hand will never cause 
His child a needless tear. 

4 My times are in Thy hand, 

Jesus the crucified ; 
The hand my cruel sins had pierced 
Is now my guard and guide.

Beneath the wings Divine, 
Reserved for all the heirs of grace ; 
O be that refuge mine ! 

2 The least and feeblest there may bide, 

Uninjured and unawed ; 
While thousands fall on every side, 
He rests secure in God. 



Give but a ray of peace, that I may 
tread 
Without a fear. 

5 I do not ask my cross to under- 

stand,

Better in darkness just to feel Thy 
hand, 
And follow Thee. 

6 Joy is like restless day; but peace 

Divine 
Like quiet night : 
Lead me, O Lord, till perfect day 
shall shine, 
Through peace to light.

He feeds in pastures, large and fair, 
Of love and truth Divine : 

O child of God, O glory's heir, 
How rich a lot is thine !

An ear for every call, 
An honored life, a peaceful end, 

And heaven to crown it all !

2 Let mountains from their seats be 4 There is a stream whose gentle flow 

hurled Supplies the city of our God ; 

Down to the deep, and buried there, Life, love, and joy, still gliding through, 
Convulsions shake the solid world, 
Our faith shall never yield to fear. 

3 Loud may the troubled ocean roar; 
In sacred peace our souls abide, 

While every nation, every shore, 



5 That sacred stream, Thy holy word, 
Our grief allays, our fear controls ; 

Sweet peace Thy promises afford, 
And give new strength to fainting 
souls. 



Trembles, and dreads the swelling tide. 

6 Zion enjoys her Monarch's love, 
Secure against a threatening hour ; 

Nor can her firm foundations move, 

Built on His truth, and armed with power. 

Rev. Isaac Watts, 1719 : verse 5, 1. 2, alt

1 HOW gentle God's commands, 
How kind His precepts are ! 

Come, cast your burdens on the Lord, 
And trust His constant care. 

2 While Providence supports, 
Let saints securely dwell ; 

That hand, which bears all nature up, 
Shall guide His children well. 



3 Why should this anxious load 
Press down your weary mind ? 

Haste to your heavenly Father's throne, 
And sweet refreshment find. 

4 His goodness stands approved, 
Down to the present day; 

I'll drop my burden at His feet, 
And bear a song away.

2 We may not climb the heavenly steeps 

To bring the Lord Christ down ; 
In vain we search the lowest deeps, 
For Him no depths can drown : 

3 But warm, sweet, tender, even yet 

A present Help is He ; 
And faith has still its Olivet, 
And love its Galilee. 

4 The healing of His seamless dress 

Is by our beds of pain ; 



We touch Him in life's throng and 
And we are whole again. [press, 

5 Through Him the first fond prayers are 

Our lips of childhood frame ; [said 
The last low whispers of our dead 
Are burdened with His Name.

Whate'er our name or sign, 
We own Thy sway, we hear Thy call, 
We test our lives by Thine.

1 MAJESTIC sweetness sits enthroned 

Upon the Saviour's brow ; 
His head with radiant glories crowned, 
His lips with grace o'erflow. 

2 No mortal can with Him compare, 

Among the sons of men ; 
Fairer is He than all the fair 
That fill the heavenly train. 

3 He saw me plunged in deep distress, 

He flew to my relief; 
For me He bore the shameful cross, 
And carried all my grief. 



M. 

4 To Him I owe my life and breath, 

And all the joys I have ; 
He makes me triumph over death, 
And saves me from the grave. 

5 To heaven, the place of His abode, 

He brings my weary feet ; 
Shows me the glories of my God, 
And makes my joys complete. 

6 Since from His bounty I receive 

Such proofs of love Divine, 
Had I a thousand hearts to give, 
Lord, they should all be Thine.

And gold is sordid dust.

Not to mine eyes is light so dear, 
Nor friendship half so sweet. 

4 Thy grace still dwells upon my heart, 

And sheds its fragrance there ; 
The noblest balm of all its wounds, 
The cordial of its care. 

Rev. Philip Doddridge, 1717 



2 lis only in lhee hiding, 3 boon shall my eyes behold lhee, 

I know my life secure ; With rapture, face to face ; 

Only in Thee abiding, One half hath not been told me 

The conflict can endure : Of all Thy power and grace ; 

Thine arm the victory gaineth Thy beauty, Lord, and glory, 

O'er every hateful foe ; The wonders of Thy love, 

Thy love my heart sustaineth Shall be the endless story 

In all its care and woe. Of all Thy saints above. 

Rev. James G. Deck. 1842 



3 Come, Almighty to deliver, 

Let us all Thy life receive ; 
Suddenly return, and never, 

Never more Thy temples leave. 
Thee we would be always blessing, 

Serve Thee as Thy hosts above, 
Pray, and praise Thee without ceasing, 

Glory in Thy perfect love. 



4 Finish, then, Thy new creation ; 

Pure and spotless let us be : 
Let us see Thy great salvation 

Perfectly restored in Thee ; 
Changed from glory into glory, 

Till in heaven we take our place, 
Till we cast our crowns before Thee, 

Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Howe'er oppressed I be, 

Howe'er forgotten here on earth, 
Do Thou remember me. 

6 And when I close my eyes in death, 
And human help shall flee, 

Then, then, my dear redeeming God, 
O then remember me.

Strong to follow in Thy grace ;

6 Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours? 
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

And Jesus call us to heaven's perfect peace. 

Bishop Edward H. Bickersteth, 1I75 



301 (GORTON) S. M. 

MY spirit on Thy care, 
Blest Saviour, I recline; 

Thou wilt not leave me to despair, 
For Thou art Love Divine. 

i In Thee I place my trust, 
On Thee I calmly rest; 
I know Thee good, I know Thee just, 
And count Thy choice the best.

Whate'er events betide, 
Thy will they all perform ; 

Safe in Thy breast my head I hide, 
Nor fear the coming storm. 

Let good or ill befall, 
It must be good for me ; 

Secure of having Thee in all, 
Of having all in Thee.

2 Which of all our friends, to save us, 

Could or would have shed their blood ? 
But our Jesus died to have us 
Reconciled in Him to God : 

This was boundless love indeed; 
Jesus is a Friend in need. 



I 
3 When He lived on earth abased, 

"Friend of sinners" was His name; 
Now above all glory raised, 
He rejoices in the same ; 

Still He calls them brethren, friends, 
And to all their wants attends. 



4 O for grace our hearts to soften ! 

Teach us, Lord, at length to love ; 
We, alas ! forget too often 
What a Friend we have above : 

But when home our souls are brought, 
We \vill love Thee as we ought. 

Rev. John Newton, 1779 



304 (ECKHARDTSHEIM) CM. 

1 IF Christ is mine, then all is mine, 
And more than angels know; 

Both present things and things to come, 
And grace and glory too. 

2 If He is mine, then, though He frown, 
He never will forsake ; 

His chastisements all work for good, 
And but His love bespeak. 

3 If he is mine, I need not fear 
The rage of earth and hell; 

He will support my feeble frame, 
And all their power repel. 



4 If He is mine, let friends forsake, 
And earthly comforts flee ; 

He, the Dispenser of all good, 
Is more than these to me. 

5 If He is mine, I'll fearless pass 
Through death's tremendous vale; 

He'll be my Comfort and my Stay 
W r hen heart and flesh shall fail. 

6 Let Jesus tell me He is mine, 
I nothing want beside : 

My soul shall at the Fountain live 
When all the streams are dried.

2 He saw me ruined in the fall, 
Yet loved me notwithstanding all, 
And saved me from my lost estate, 
His loving-kindness is so great. 

3 Through mighty hosts of cruel foes, 
Where earth and hell my way oppose, 
He safely leads my soul along, 

His loving-kindness is so strong. 

4 So when I pass death's gloomy vale, 
And life and mortal powers shall fail, 
O may my last expiring breath 

His loving-kindness sing in death.

To the bright world of endless day ; 
There shall I sing, with sweet surprise, 
His loving-kindness in the skies.

Still in Thee may I be found, 

Still for Thee my powers employ.

Freely from Thy fulness give ; 
Till I close my earthly race, 

May I prove it ''Christ to live."

Nothing shall my heart confound J 



3 O Joy that seekest me through pain, 

I cannot close my heart to Thee ;

And feel the promise is not vain 
That morn shall tearless be.

I dare not ask to fly from Thee j 
I lay in dust life's glory dead, 
And from the ground there blossoms

Life that shall endless be.

Safely I shall pass the flood, 

Safely reach Emmanuel's ground.

Back the closing waves shall roll ; 

Death's dark stream shall nevermore 

Part from Thee my ravished soul. 

5 Thus, O thus, an entrance give 

To the land of cloudless sky; 
Having known it "Christ to live," 
Let me know it " gain to die."

2 There is a place where Jesus sheds 
The oil of gladness on our heads, 
A place than all besides more sweet ; 
It is the blood-stained mercy-seat.

Where friend holds fellowship with

Though sundered far ; by faith they

Around the common mercy-seat.

When tempted, desolate, dismayed, 
Or how the hosts of hell defeat, 
Had suffering saints no mercy-seat ?

And heaven comes down our souls

2 There is an arm that never tires 

When human strength gives way; 
There is a love that never fails 
W r hen earthly loves decay. 

3 That eye is fixed on seraph throngs ; 

That arm upholds the sky ; 
That ear is filled with angel songs ; 
That love is throned on high. 

4 But there's a power which man can wield 

When mortal aid is vain, 



That eye, that arm, that love to

That power is prayer, which soars on

And moves the hand which moves the

325 (BYEFIELD) C M 



1 PRAYER is the soul's sincere desire, 4 Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice 
Uttered or unexpressed, Returning from his ways, 

The motion of a hidden fire While angels in their songs rejoice, 

That trembles in the breast. And cry, "Behold, he prays." 



2 Prayer is the burden of a sigh, 
The falling of a tear, 
The upward glancing of an eye 
When none but God is near. 



5 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath, 
The Christian's native air, 
His watchword at the gates of death ; 
He enters heaven with prayer. 



3 Prayer is the simplest form of speech 6 O Thou, by whom we come to God, 
That infant lips can try ; The Life, the Truth, the W r ay, 

Prayer the sublimest strains that reach The path of prayer Thyself hast trod ; 
The Majesty on high. Lord, teach us how to pray. 

James Montgomery, 181?

Darkness be over me, 

My rest a stone ; 
Yet in my dreams I'd be 
Nearer, my God, to Thee, 

Nearer to Thee !

Steps unto heaven : 
All that Thou send'st to me 

In mercy given : 
Angels to beckon me 
Nearer, my God, to Thee, 

Nearer to Thee ! 



4 Then, with my waking thoughts 
Bright with Thy praise, 

Out of my stony griefs 

Bethel I'll raise ; 
So by my woes to be 
Nearer, my God, to Thee, 

Nearer to Thee ! 

5 Or if on joyful wing 
Cleaving the sky, 

Sun, moon, and stars forgot, 

Upwards I fly, 
Still all my song shall be, 
Nearer, my God, to Thee, 

Nearer to Thee !

Help me to tear it from Thy throne,

2 Should earth against my soul engage, 3 Let cares like a wild deluge come, 

And hellish darts be hurled, And storms of sorrow fall, 

Then I can smile at Satan's rage, May I but safely reach my home, 

And face a frowning world. My God, my heaven, my all : 

4 There shall I bathe my weary soul 
In seas of heavenly rest, 
And not a wave of trouble roll 
Across my peaceful breast. 

Rev. Isaac Watts, 1707

1 O FOR a heart to praise my God, 
A heart from sin set free ; 
A heart that always feels Thy blood. 
So freely spilt for me ! 



3 A humble, lowly, contrite heart, 
Believing, true, and clean, 
Which neither life nor death can part 
From Him that dwells within ; 



2 A heart resigned, submissive, meek, 4 A heart in every thought renewed, 

My great Redeemer's throne ; And full of love Divine ; 

Where only Christ is heard to speak, Perfect, and right, and pure, and good, 

Where Jesus reigns alone ; A copy, Lord, of Thine. 

5 Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart ; 
Come quickly from above ; 
Write Thy new Name upon my heart, 
Thy new, best Name of Love.

1 FAR from my heavenly home, 

Far from my Father's breast, 
Fainting I cry, "Blest Spirit, come 
And speed me to my rest." 

2 Upon the willows long 

My harp has silent hung : 
How should I sing a cheerful song 
Till thou inspire my tongue ? 

3 My spirit homeward turns, 

And fain would thither flee : 



Where Jesus knelt to share with 

Thee 
The silence of eternity, 

Interpreted by love ! 

4 With that deep hush subduing 
fl all 

JJ Our words and works that drown 
The tender whisper of Thy call, 
As noiseless let Thy blessing fall 
As fell Thy manna down. 

Drop Thy still dews of quietness, 

Till all our strivings cease ; [stress, 
Take from our souls the strain and 
And let our ordered lives confess 
The beauty of Thy peace. 

John G. Whittier, 1872 



My heart, O Zion, droops and yearns 
When I remember thee. 

4 To thee, to thee I press, f 

A dark and toilsome road : 
When shall I pass the wilderness, 
And reach the saints' abode ? 

5 God of my life, be near ; 

On Thee my hopes I cast : 
O guide me through the desert here, 
And bring me home at last.

A stranger to myself and Thee ; 
Amidst a thousand thoughts I rove, 
Forgetful of my highest love.

earth, 
And thus debase my heavenly birth ? 
Why should I cleave to things

And let my God, my Saviour, go ? 



3 Call me away from flesh and sense : 
One sovereign word can draw me 

thence ; 
I would obey the voice Divine, 
And all inferior joys resign.

Let noise and vanity be gone ; 
In secret silence of the mind 
My heaven, and there my God, I find.

In all my works Thy presence find, 
And prove Thy good and perfect 
will. 

3 Preserve me from my calling's snare, 

And hide my simple heart above ; 
Above the thorns of choking care, 
The gilded baits of worldly love. 



4 Thee may I set at my right hand, 

Whose eyes mine inmost substance 
see, 
And labor on at Thy command, 
And offer all my works to Thee. 

5 Give me to bear Thy easy yoke, 

And every moment watch and pray ; 
And still to things eternal look, 
And hasten to Thy glorious day : 

6 For Thee delightfully employ [given, 

Whate'er Thy bounteous grace hath 
And run my course with even joy, 
And closely walk with Thee to 
heaven.

i IT is not death to die, 3 It is not death to bear 

To leave this weary road, The wrench that sets us free 

And midst the brotherhood on high From dungeon chain, to breathe the air 

To be at home with God. Of boundless liberty. 

2 It is not death to close 4 It is not death to fling 

The eye long dimmed by tears, Aside this sinful. dust, 

And wake, in glorious repose And rise, on strong exulting wing, 

To spend eternal years. To live among the just. 

5 Jesus, Thou Prince of Life, 
Thy chosen cannot die : 
Like Thee, they conquer in the strife, 
To reign with Thee on high.

I would not live alway, thus fettered by sin ; 
Temptation without, and corruption within : 
E'en the rapture of pardon is mingled with fears, 
And the cup of thanksgiving with penitent tears. 

I would not live alway ; no, welcome the tomb : 
Since Jesus hath lain there, I dread not its gloom ; 
There sweet be my rest, till Pie bid me arise 
To hail Him in triumph descending the skies.

1 O WHERE shall rest be found, 
Rest for the weary soul ? 

'Twere vain the ocean-depths to sound, 
Or pierce to either pole : 

2 The world can never give 
The bliss for which we sigh ; 

'Tis not the whole of life to live, 
Nor all of death to die. 

3 Beyond this vale of tears 
There is a life above, 

Unmeasured by the flight of years, 
And all that life is love : 



S. M. 



4 There is a death whose pang 
Outlasts the fleeting breath; 

O what eternal horrors hang 
Around the second death ! 

5 Lord God of truth and grace, 
Teach us that death to shun, 

Lest we be banished from Thy face, 
And evermore undone. 

6 Here would we end our quest : 
Alone are found in Thee 

The life of perfect love, the rest 
Of immortality.

3 Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood 5 O could we make our doubts remove, 

Stand dressed in living green ; Those gloomy doubts that rise, 

So to the Jews old Canaan stood, And see the Canaan that we love 

While Jordan rolled between. With unbeclouded eyes ; 

4 But timorous mortals start and shrink 6 Could we but climb where Moses stood, 

To cross this narrow sea ; And view the landscape o'er, [flood, 

And linger, shivering, on the brink, Not Jordan's stream, nor death's cold 

And fear to launch away. Should fright us from the shore.

Rouse dead souls to hear Thy voice 
Wake, O wake each idle dreamer 
Now to make the eternal choice.

As a vapor so it flies ; 
For the old year now retreating 
Pardon grant, and make us wise ; 



4 Wise that we our days may number, 

Strive and wrestle with our sin, 
Stay not in our work, nor slumber 
Till Thy glorious rest we win.

We with all the dead shall stand :

Place us then on Thy right hand.

GREAT God, we sing that mighty 

hand 
By which supported still we stand ; 
The opening year Thy mercy shows; 
That mercy crowns it till it close. 

By day, by night, at home, abroad, 
Still are we guarded by our God ; 
By His incessant bounty fed, 
By His unerring counsel led. 



With grateful hearts the past we 

own ; 
The future, all to us unknown, 
We to Thy guardian care commit, 
And peaceful leave before Thy feet. 

In scenes exalted or depressed, 
Thou art our Joy, and Thou our Rest ; 
Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise, 
Adored through all our changing days. 



When death shall interrupt these songs, 
And seal in silence mortal tongues ; 
Our Helper God, in whom we trust, 
In better worlds our souls shall boast.

2 Praise Him for His grace and favor 3 Father-like, He tends and spares us; 



To our fathers in distress ; 
Praise Him, still the same for ever, 
Slow to chide, and swift to bless ; 

Praise Him, praise Him, 
Glorious in His faithfulness. 



Well our feeble frame He knows ; 
In His hands He gently bears us, 
Rescues us from all our foes ; 

Praise Him, praise Him, 
Widely as His mercy goes. 



4 Angels, help us to adore Him ; 
Ye behold Him face to face ; 
Sun and moon, bow down before Him, 
Dwellers all in time and space, 

Praise Him, praise Him, 
Praise with us the God of grace.

(WAREHAM) L.M. 



1 O GOD, beneath Thy guiding hand, 
Our exiled fathers crossed the sea ; 
And when they trod the wintry strand, 
With prayer and psalm they worshipped 

Thee. 

2 Thou heard'st, well pleased, the song, 

the prayer : 
Thy blessing came ; and still its power 
Shall onward, through all ages, bear 
The memory of that holy hour. 



1st 5 11. Rev. Charles T. Brooks, c. 1833: 
the remainder, Rev. John S. Dwight, 1844 



3 Laws, freedom, truth, and faith in God 
Came with those exiles o'er the waves ; 
And where their pilgrim feet have 

trod, 
The God they trusted guards their 
graves. 

4 And here Thy Name, O God of love, 
Their children's children shall adore, 
Till these eternal hills remove, 

And spring adorns the earth no more. 

Rev. Leonard Bacon, 1833 (text of 184s}

PREFACE 

T N obedience tc a continuous demand, these Selections from the Psalter 
have been prepared for use in the services of the churches. The text 
is that of the standard of the American Bible Society, except that words 
there printed in italics are here given in the roman type, and that the 
verses included in any selection are numbered consecutively, with a note to 
show their numbering in the original Psalm. It has seemed best, on the 
whole, that these Selections should be arranged for reading verse by verse, 
rather than by the structural divisions within the verse. It is by verses, 
and not by antiphons, that the Psalms have been learned ; and the verse- 
divisions, while originally artificial, no doubt, now mark the natural and 
familiar breaks in the rhythm of the Psalm, not only in the English Bible, 
but in the memory and the heart. This arrangement has been decided 
upon with the further thought, also, that if in the future a like selection 
from the Psalter, pointed for chanting, shall be issued by the Board, this 
arrangement for reading may correspond with that ; for the proper pointing 
of the Psalms for chanting requires the verse-divisions. 

The Psalms are here given in the order in which they occur in the 
Scriptures. But, within the limits imposed by such an arrangement, the 
effort has been made to give a certain unity, or at least manifest progres- 
sion, of thought to each selection. The Gloria Patri is printed after the 
Selections, and is arranged so that it may be either read or sung, in such 
churches as desire to use it at the close of the reading.

Selection \ 

Psalm i 
i BLESSED is the man that walketh 
not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor 
standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth 
in the seat of the scornful. 

2 But his delight is in the law of the 
Lord ; and in his law doth he meditate 
day and night. 

3 And he shall be like a tree planted 
by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth 
his fruit in his season ; his leaf also shall 
not wither ; and whatsoever he doeth shall 
prosper. 

4 The ungodly are not so : but are like 
the chaff which the wind driveth away. 

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand 
in the judgment, nor sinners in the con- 
gregation of the righteous. 

6 For the Lord knoweth the way of 
the righteous : but the way of the ungodly 
shall perish. 

Psalm 2 

7 WHY do the heathen rage, and the 
people imagine a vain thing ? 

8 The kings of the earth set them- 
selves, and the rulers take counsel to- 
gether, against the Lord, and against his 
Anointed, saying, 

9 Let us break their bands asunder, 
and cast away their cords from us. 

10 He that sitteth in the heavens shall 
laugh : the Lord shall have them in de- 
rision. 

1 1 Then shall he speak unto them in 
his wrath, and vex them in his sore dis- 
pleasure. 

12 Yet have I set my King upon my 
holy hill of Zion. 

13 I will declare the decree : the Lord 
hath said unto me, Thou art my Son ; this 
day have I begotten thee. 



14 Ask of me, and I shall give thee 
the heathen for thine inheritance, and the 
uttermost parts of the earth for thy pos- 
session. 

1 5 Thou shalt break them with a rod 
of iron ; thou shalt dash them in pieces 
like a potter's vessel. 

16 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings : 
be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 

17 Serve the Lord with fear, and re- 
joice with trembling. 

18 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and 
ye perish from the way, when his wrath is 
kindled but a little. Blessed are all they 
that put their trust in him. 

Psalm 4 

19 HEAR me when I call, O God of 
my righteousness : thou hast enlarged me 
when I was in distress ; have mercy upon 
me, and hear my prayer. 

20 O ye sons of men, how long will 
ye turn my glory into shame ? how long 
will ye love vanity, and seek after leas- 
ing ? 

21 But know that the Lord hath set 
apart him that is godly for himself : the 
Lord will hear when I call unto him. 

22 Stand in awe, and sin not ; com- 
mune with your own heart upon your bed : 
and be still. 

23 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, 
and put your trust in the Lord. 

24 There be many that say, Who 
will show us any good ? Lord, lift thou 
up the light of thy countenance upon 
us. 

25 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, 
more than in the time that their corn and 
their wine increased. 

26 I will both lay me down in peace, 
and sleep : for thou, Lord, only makest 
me dwell in safety.

Selection 2 

Psalm 5:1-7 

1 GIVE ear to my words, O Lord ; 
consider my meditation. 

2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, 
my King, and my God : for unto thee will 
I pray. 

3 My voice shalt thou hear in the 
morning, O Lord ; in the morning will I 
direct my prayer unto thee, and will look 
up. 

4 For thou art not a God that hath 
pleasure in wickedness : neither shall evil 
dwell with thee. 

5 The foolish shall not stand in thy 
sight : thou hatest all workers of iniquity. 

6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak 
leasing : the Lord will abhor the bloody 
and deceitful man. 

7 But as for me, I will come into thy 
house in the multitude of thy mercy : and 
in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy 
temple. 

Psalm 8 

8 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is 
thy name in all the earth ! who hast set 
thy glory above the heavens. 

9 Out of the mouth of babes and suck- 
lings hast thou ordained strength because 
of thine enemies, that thou mightest still 
the enemy and the avenger. 

10 When I consider thy heavens, the 
work of thy fingers, the moon and the 
stars, which thou hast ordained ; 

1 1 What is man, that thou art mindful 
of him ? and the son of man, that thou 
visitest him ? 

12 For thou hast made him a little 
lower than the angels, and hast crowned 
him with glory and honor. 

13 Thou madest him to have domin- 
ion over the works of thy hands ; thou 
hast put all things under his feet :

beasts of the field ;

the sea, and whatsoever passeth through 
the paths of the seas. 

16 O Lord our Lord, how excellent 
is thy name in all the earth ! 

Psalm ii 

17 IN the Lord put I my trust : how 
say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your 
mountain ? 

18 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, 
they make ready their arrow upon the 
string, that they may privily shoot at the 
upright in heart. 

19 If the foundations be destroyed, 
what can the righteous do ? 

20 The Lord is in his holy temple, 
the Lord's throne is in heaven : his eyes 
behold, his eyelids try, the children of 
men. 

21 The Lord trieth the righteous : but 
the wicked and him that loveth violence 
his soul hateth. 

22 Upon the wicked he shall rain 
snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible 
tempest : this shall be the portion of their 
cup. 

23 For the righteous Lord loveth right- 
eousness ; his countenance doth behold 
the upright.

Psalm 13 

1 HOW long wilt thou forget me, O 
Lord ? for ever ? how long wilt thou hide 
thy face from me ? 

2 How long shall I take counsel in my 
soul, having sorrow in my heart daily ? 
how long shall mine enemy be exalted 
over me ? 

3 Consider and hear me, O Lord my 
God : lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the 
sleep of death ; 

4 Lest mine enemy say, I have pre- 
vailed against him ; and those that trouble 
me rejoice when I am moved. 



E\}i psalter 



5 But I have trusted in thy mercy ; my 
heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. 

6 I will sing unto the Lord, because 
he hath dealt bountifully with me. 

Psalm 15 

7 LORD, who shall abide in thy 
tabernacle ? who shall dwell in thy holy 
hill? 

8 He that walketh uprightly, and work- 
eth righteousness, and speaketh the truth 
in his heart. 

9 He that backbiteth not with his 
tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbor, 
nor taketh up a reproach against his 
neighbor. 

10 In whose eyes a vile person is 
contemned ; but he honoreth them that 
fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his 
own hurt, and changeth not. 

1 1 He that putteth not out his money 
to usury, nor taketh reward against the 
innocent. He that doeth these things 
shall never be moved. 

Psalm 16 

12 PRESERVE me, O God: for in 
thee do I put my trust. 

13 O my soul, thou hast said unto the 
Lord, Thou art my Lord : my goodness 
extendeth not to thee ; 

14 But to the saints that are in the 
earth and to the excellent, in whom is all 
my delight. 

15 Their sorrows shall be multiplied 
that hasten after another god : their drink 
offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take 
up their names into my lips. 

16 The Lord is the portion of mine 
inheritance and of my cup : thou main- 
tainest my lot. 

17 The lines are fallen unto me in 
pleasant places ; yea, I have a goodly 
heritage. 

18 I will bless the Lord, who hath 
given me counsel : my reins also instruct 
me in the night seasons. 



19 I have set the Lord always before 
me : because he is at my right hand, I 
shall not be moved. 

20 Therefore my heart is glad, and 
my glory rejoiceth : my flesh also shall 
rest in hope. 

21 For thou wilt not leave my soul in 
hell ; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy 
One to see corruption. 

22 Thou wilt show me the path of 
life : in thy presence is fulness of joy ; at 
thy right hand there are pleasures for 
evermore.

Psalm 17 : 1-9, 15 

1 HEAR the right, O Lord, attend 
unto my cry ; give ear unto my prayer, 
that goeth not out of feigned lips. 

2 Let my sentence come forth from 
thy presence ; let thine eyes behold the 
things that are equal. 

3 Thou hast proved mine heart ; thou 
hast visited me in the night ; thou hast 
tried me, and shalt find nothing : I am pur- 
posed that my mouth shall not transgress. 

4 Concerning the works of men, by 
the word of thy lips I have kept me from 
the paths of the destroyer. 

5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, 
that my footsteps slip not. 

6 I have called upon thee, for thou 
wilt hear me, O God : incline thine ear 
unto me, and hear my speech. 

7 Show thy marvellous loving-kind- 
ness, O thou that savest by thy right hand 
them which put their trust in thee from 
those that rise up against them. 

8 Keep me as the apple of the eye ; 
hide me under the shadow of thy wings, 

9 From the wicked that oppress me, 
from my deadly enemies, who compass 
me about. 

10 As for me, I will behold thy face 
in righteousness : I shall be satisfied, 
when I awake, with thy likeness.

Psalm 18 : 1-19 

11 I WILL love thee, O Lord, my 
strength. 

12 The Lord is my rock, and my 
fortress, and my deliverer ; mv God, 
my strength, in whom I will trust ; my 
buckler, and the horn of my salvation, 
and my high tower. 

13 I will call upon the Lord, who is 
worthy to be praised : so shall I be saved 
from mine enemies. 

14 The sorrows of death compassed 
me, and the floods of ungodly men made 
me afraid. 

1 5 The sorrows of hell compassed me 
about : the snares of death prevented 
me. 

16 In my distress I called upon the 
Lord, and cried unto my God : he heard 
my voice out of his temple, and my cry 
came before him, even into his ears. 

17 Then the earth shook and trem- 
bled ; the foundations also of the hills 
moved and were shaken, because he was 
wroth. 

18 There went up a smoke out of 
his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth 
devoured : coals were kindled by it. 

19 He bowed the heavens also, and 
came down : and darkness was under 
his feet. 

20 And he rode upon a cherub, and 
did fly : yea, he did fly upon the wings 
of the wind. 

21 He made darkness his secret place ; 
his pavilion round about him were dark 
waters and thick clouds of the skies. 

22 At the brightness that was before 
him his thick clouds passed, hail stones 
and coals of fire. 

23 The Lord also thundered in the 
heavens, and the Highest gave his voice ; 
hail stones and coals of fire. 

24 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and 
scattered them ; and he shot out light- 
nings, and discomfited them. 



25 Then the channels of waters were 
seen, and the foundations of the world 
were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord. 
at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. 

26 He sent from above, he took me, 
he drew me out of many waters. 

27 He delivered me from my strong 
enemy, and from them which hated me ; 
for they were too strong for me. 

28 They prevented me in the day of 
my calamity : but the Lord was my stay. 

29 He brought me forth also into a 
large place ; he delivered me, because he 
delighted in me.

Psalm 18 : 25-35 

1 WITH the merciful thou wilt show 
thyself merciful ; with an upright man 
thou wilt show thyself upright ; 

2 With the pure thou wilt show thyself 
pure ; and with the froward thou wilt 
show thyself froward. 

3 For thou wilt save the afflicted 
people ; but wilt bring down high looks. 

4 For thou wilt light my candle : the 
Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. 

5 For by thee I have run through a 
troop ; and by my God have I leaped 
over a wall. 

6 As for God, his way is perfect : the 
word of the Lord is tried ; he is a buckler 
to all those that trust in him. 

7 For who is God save the Lord ? or 
who is a rock save our God ? 

8 It is God that girdeth me with 
strength, and maketh my way perfect. 

9 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, 
and setteth me upon my high places. 

XO He teacheth my hands to war, so 
that a bow of steel is broken by mine 
arms. 

1 1 Thou hast also given me the shield 
of thy salvation ; and thy right hand hath 
holden me up, and thy gentleness hath 
made me great.

Psalm 19 

12 THE heavens declare the glory of 
God ; and the firmament showeth his 
handy work. 

1 3 Day unto day uttereth speech, and 
night unto night showeth knowledge. 

14 There is no speech nor language, 
where their voice is not heard. 

15 Their line is gone out through all 
the earth, and their words to the end of 
the world. In them hath he set a taber- 
nacle for the sun, 

16 Which is as a bridegroom coming 
out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a 
strong man to run a race. 

17 His going forth is from the end of 
the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends 
of it : and there is nothing hid from the 
heat thereof. 

18 The law of the Lord is perfect, 
converting the soul : the testimony of 
the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 

19 The statutes of the Lord are right, 
rejoicing the heart : the commandment 
of the Lord is pure, enlightening the 
eyes. 

20 The fear of the Lord is clean, en- 
during for ever : the judgments of the 
Lord are true and righteous altogether. 

21 More to be desired are they than 
gold, yea, than much fine gold : sweeter 
also than honey and the honeycomb. 

22 Moreover by them is thy servant 
warned : and in keeping of them there is 
great reward. 

23 Who can understand his errors ? 
cleanse thou me from secret faults. 

24 Keep back thy servant also from 
presumptuous sins ; let them not have 
dominion over me : then shall I be up- 
right, and I shall be innocent from the 
great transgression. 

25 Let the words of my mouth, and 
the meditation of my heart, be acceptable 
in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and 
my redeemer.

4 Grant thee according to thine own

me in the paths of righteousness for his 
name's sake. 

13 Yea, though I walk through the 
valley of the shadow of death, I will fear 
no evil : for thou art with me ; thy rod 
and thy staff they comfort me. 

14 Thou preparest a table before me 
in the presence of mine enemies : thou 
anointest my head with oil ; my cup 
runneth over.

low me all the days of my life : and I will 
dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

pure heart ; who hath not lifted up his 
soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 

20 He shall receive the blessing from

3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be 
ashamed : let them be ashamed which 
transgress without cause.

me thy paths. 

5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me : 
for thou art the God of my salvation ; on 
thee do I wait all the day. 

6 Remember, O Lord, thy tender 



mercies and thy loving-kindnesses ; for 
they have been ever of old. 

7 Remember not the sins of my youth, 
nor my transgressions : according to thy 
mercy remember thou me for thy good- 
ness' sake, O Lord. 

8 Good and upright is the Lord : 
therefore will he teach sinners in the 
way. 

9 The meek will he guide in judg- 
ment : and the meek will he teach his 
way. 

10 All the paths of the Lord are mercy 
and truth unto such as keep his covenant 
and his testimonies. 

1 1 For thy name's sake, O Lord, 
pardon mine iniquity ; for it is great. 

12 What man is he that feareth the 
Lord ? him shall he teach in the way 
that he shall choose. 

13 His soul shall dwell at ease ; and 
his seed shall inherit the earth. 

14 The secret of the Lord is with 
them that fear him ; and he will show 
them his covenant. 

15 Mine eyes are ever toward the

my life with bloody men : 

3 In whose hands is mischief, and 
their right hand is full of bribes.

Psalm 27 

6 THE Lord is my light and my sal-

the strength of my life ; of whom shall I 
be afraid ?

mies and my foes, came upon me to eat 
up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. 

8 Though a host should encamp 
against me, my heart shall not fear : 
though war should rise against me, in 
this will I be confident. 

9 One thing have I desired of the 
Lord, that will I seek after ; that I may 
dwell in the house of the Lord all the 
days of my life, to behold the beauty of 
the Lord, and to inquire in his temple. 

10 For in the time of trouble he shall 
hide me in his pavilion : in the secret of 
his tabernacle shall he hide me ; he shall 
set me up upon a rock. 

1 1 And now shall mine head be lifted 
up above mine enemies round about me : 
therefore will I offer in his tabernacle 
sacrifices of joy ; I will sing, yea, I will 
sing praises unto the Lord. 

12 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my 
voice : have mercy also upon me, and 
answer me. 

13 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face ;

my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, 
will I seek. 

14 Hide not thy face far from me ; 
put not thy servant away in anger : thou 
hast been my help ; leave me not, neither 
forsake me, O God of my salvation. 

1 5 When my father and my mother 
forsake me, then the Lord will take me 
up. 

16 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and 
lead me in a plain path, because of mine 
enemies. 

17 Deliver me not over unto the will 
of mine enemies : for false witnesses are 
risen up against me, and such as breathe 
out cruelty. 

18 I had fainted, unless I had believed 
to see the goodness of the Lord in the 
land of the living.

delivereth them. 

8 O taste and see that the Lord is 
good : blessed is the man that trusteth 
in him. 

9 O fear the Lord, ye his saints : for 
there is no want to them that fear him. 



10 The young lions do lack, and suffer 
hunger ; but they that seek the Lord 
shall not want any good thing. 

1 1 Come, ye children, hearken unto

12 What man is he that desireth life, 
and loveth many days, that he may see 
good ? 

13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and 
thy lips from speaking guile. 

14 Depart from evil, and do good ; 
seek peace, and pursue it. 

1 5 The eyes of the Lord are upon the 
righteous, and his ears are open unto 
their cry. 

16 The face of the Lord is against 
them that do evil, to cut off the remem- 
brance of them from the earth. 

17 The righteous cry, and the Lord 
heareth, and delivereth them out of all 
their troubles. 

18 The Lord is nigh unto them that 
are of a broken heart ; and saveth such

19 Many are the afflictions of the 
righteous : but the Lord delivereth him 
out of them all. 

20 He keepeth all his bones: not one 
of them is broken. 

21 Evil shall slay the wicked : and 
they that hate the righteous shall be 
desolate. 

22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of 
his servants: and none of them that trust 
in him shall be desolate. 

Psalm 36 : 5-10 

23 Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the

God ! therefore the children of men put 
their trust under the shadow of thy wings. 
2<» They shall be abundantly satisfied 
with the fatness of thy house ; and thou 
shalt make them drink of the river of 
thy pleasures. 

27 For with thee is the fountain of 
life : in thy light shall we see light.

Psalm 37 : 1-9, 23-40 

1 FRET not thyself because of evil 
doers, neither be thou envious against the 
workers of iniquity. 

2 For they shall soon be cut down like 
the grass, and wither as the green herb. 

3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so 
shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily 
thou shalt be fed. 

4 Delight thyself also in the Lord ; 
and he shall give thee the desires of 
thine heart. 

5 Commit thy way unto the Lord ; 
trust also in him ; and he shall bring it 
to pass. 

6 And he shall bring forth thy right- 
eousness as the light, and thy judgment 
as the noonday. 

7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently 
for him : fret not thyself because of him 
who prospereth in his way, because of the 
man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 

8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath : 
fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. 

9 For evil doers shall be cut off : but 
those that wait upon the Lord, they shall 
inherit the earth. 

10 The steps of a good man are 
ordered by the Lord ; and he delighteth 
in his way. 

1 1 Though he fall, he shall not be 
utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth 
him with his hand. 



12 I have been young, and now am 
old ; yet have I not seen the righteous 
forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 

13 He is ever merciful, and lendeth ; 
and his seed is blessed. 

14 Depart from evil, and do good ; 
and dwell for evermore. 

1 5 For the Lord loveth judgment, and 
forsaketh not his saints ; they are pre- 
served for ever ; but the seed of the 
wicked shall be cut off. 

I<> The righteous shall inherit the 
land, and dwell therein for ever. 

17 The mouth of the righteous speak- 
eth wisdom, and his tongue talketh of 
judgment. 

18 The law of his God is in his heart; 
none of his steps shall slide. 

19 The wicked watcheth the righteous, 
and seeketh to slay him. 

20 The Lord will not leave him in 
his hand, nor condemn him when he is 
judged. 

21 Wait on the Lord, and keep his 
way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the 
land : when the wicked are cut off, thou 
shalt see it. 

22 I have seen the wicked in great 
power, and spreading himself like a green 
bay tree. 

23 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he 
was not : yea, I sought him, but he could 
not be found. 

24 Mark the perfect man, and behold 
the upright : for the end of that man is 
peace. 

25 But the transgressors shall be 
destroyed together: the end of the wicked 
shall be cut off. 

26 But the salvation of the righteous 
is of the Lord : he is their strength in 
the time of trouble. 

27 And the Lord shall help them, and 
deliver them ; he shall deliver them from 
the wicked, and save them, because they 
trust in him.

Psalm 39 

1 I SAID, I will take heed to my 
ways, that I sin not with my tongue : I 
will keep my mouth with a bridle, while 
the wicked is before me. 

2 I was dumb with silence, I held my 
peace, even from good ; and my sorrow 
was stirred. 

3 My heart was hot within me ; while 
I was musing the fire burned: then spake 
I with my tongue, 

4 Lord, make me to know mine end, 
and the measure of my days, what it is ; 
that I may know how frail I am. 

5 Behold, thou hast made my days 
as a handbreath ; and mine age is as 
nothing before thee : verily every man at 
his best state is altogether vanity. 

6 Surely every man walketh in a vain 
show ; surely they are disquieted in vain : 
he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not 
who shall gather them. 

7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? 
my hope is in thee. 

8 Deliver me from all my transgres- 
sions : make me not the reproach of the 
foolish. 

9 I was dumb, I opened not my 
mouth ; because thou didst it. 

10 Remove thy stroke away from me: 
I am consumed by the blow of thine 
hand. 

1 1 When thou with rebukes dost cor- 
rect man for iniquity, thou makest his 
beauty to consume away like a moth : 
surely every man is vanity. 

12 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give 
ear unto my cry ; hold not thy peace at 
my tears : for I am a stranger with 
thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers 
were. 

13 O spare me, that I may recover 
strength, before I go hence, and be no 
more. 



Psalm 40 : 1— 1 3, 16-17 

14 I WAITED patiently for the Lord; 
and he inclined unto me, and heard my 
cry. 

15 He brought me up also out of a 
horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set 
my feet upon a rock, and established my 
goings. 

16 And he hath put a new song in 
my mouth, even praise unto our God : 
many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust 
in the Lord. 

17 Blessed is that man that maketh 
the Lord his trust, and respecteth not 
the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. 

18 Many, O Lord my God, are thy 
wonderful works which thou hast done, 
and thy thoughts which are to us-ward : 

19 They cannot be reckoned up in 
order unto thee : if I would declare and 
speak of them, they are more than can 
be numbered. 

20 Sacrifice and offering thou didst 
not desire ; mine ears hast thou opened : 
burnt offering and sin offering hast thou 
not required. 

21 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the 
volume of the book it is written of me, 

22 I delight to do thy will, O my God, 
yea, thy law is within my heart. 

23 I have preached righteousness in 
the great congregation : lo, I have not 
refrained my lips, O Lord, thou knowest. 

24 I have not hid thy righteousness 
within my heart ; I have declared thy 
faithfulness and thy salvation : I have not 
concealed thy loving-kindness and thy 
truth from the great congregation. 

25 Withhold not thou thy tender mer- 
cies from me, O Lord : let thy loving- 
kindness and thy truth continually pre- 
serve me. 

26 For innumerable evils have com- 
passed me about : mine iniquities have 
taken hold upon me, so that I am not 
able to look up ; they are more than the

hairs of mine head : therefore my heart 
faileth me. 

27 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me: 
O Lord, make haste to help me. 

28 Let all those that seek thee rejoice 
and be glad in thee : let such as love 
thy salvation say continually, The Lord 
be magnified.

Lord thinketh upon me : thou art my

holyday.

therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. 

3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O 
most Mighty, with thy glory and thy 
majesty. 

4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously, 
because of truth and meekness and right- 
eousness ; and thy right hand shall teach 
thee terrible things. 

5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart 
of the King's enemies ; whereby the peo- 
ple fall under thee. 

6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and

right sceptre. 

7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest 
wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath 
anointed thee with the oil of gladness 
above thy fellows. 

8 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and 
aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, 
whereby they have made thee glad.

in raiment of needlework : the virgins 
her companions that follow her shall be

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with 
marrow and fatness ; and my mouth shall 
praise thee with joyful lips : 

6 When I remember thee upon my bed, 
and meditate on thee in the night watches. 

7 Because thou hast been my help, 
therefore in the shadow of thy wings will 
I rejoice. 

8 My soul followeth hard after thee : 
thy right hand upholdeth me. 

9 But those that seek my soul, to de- 
stroy it, shall go into the lower parts of 
the earth. 

10 They shall fall by the sword : they 
shall be a portion for foxes. 

1 1 But the king shall rejoice in God ; 
every one that sweareth by him shall 
glory : but the mouth of them that speak 
lies shall be stopped. 



Psalm 65 

12 PRAISE waiteth for thee, O God, 
in Zion : and unto thee shall the vow be 
performed. 

13 O thou that hearest prayer, unto 
thee shall all flesh come. 

14 Iniquities prevail against me : as 
for our transgressions, thou shalt purge 
them away. 

15 Blessed is the man whom thou 
choosest, and causest to approach unto 
thee, that he may dwell in thy courts : we 
shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy 
house, even of thy holy temple. 

16 By terrible things in righteousness 
wilt thou answer us, O God of our salva- 
tion ; who art the confidence of all the 
ends of the earth, and of them that are 
afar off upon the sea : 

1 7 Which by his strength setteth fast 
the mountains ; being girded with power : 

18 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, 
the noise of their waves, and the tumult 
of the people. 

19 They also that dwell in the utter- 
most parts are afraid at thy tokens : thou 
makest the outgoings of the morning and 
evening to rejoice. 

20 Thou visitest the earth, and water- 
est it : thou greatly enrichest it with the 
river of God, which is full of water : thou 
preparest them corn, when thou hast so 
provided for it. 

21 Thou waterest the ridges thereof 
abundantly : thou settlest the furrows 
thereof : thou makest it soft with showers : 
thou blessest the springing thereof. 

22 Thou crow nest the year with thy 
goodness ; and thy paths drop fatness. 

23 They drop upon the pastures of the 
wilderness : and the little hills rejoice on 
every side. 

24 The pastures are clothed with 
flocks ; the valleys also are covered over 
with corn ; they shout for joy, they also 
sing.

Psalm 66 

1 MAKE a joyful noise unto God, all 
ye lands : 

2 Sing forth the honor of his name : 
make his praise glorious. 

3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou 
in thy works ! through the greatness of 
thy power shall thine enemies submit 
themselves unto thee. 

4 All the earth shall worship thee, and 
shall sing unto thee ; they shall sing to 
thy name. 

5 Come and see the works of God : 
he is terrible in his doing toward the 
children of men. 

6 He turned the sea into dry land : 
they went through the flood on foot: there 
did we rejoice in him. 

7 He ruleth by his power for ever ; his 
eyes behold the nations : let not the re- 
bellious exalt themselves. 

8 O bless our God, ye people, and 
make the voice of his praise to be heard : 

9 Which holdeth our soul in life, and 
suffereth not our feet to be moved. 

10 For thou, O God, hast proved us : 
thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. 

1 1 Thou broughtest us into the net ; 
thou laidst affliction upon our loins. 

12 Thou hast caused men to ride over 
our heads ; we went through fire and 
through water : but thou broughtest us 
out into a wealthy place. 

13 I will go into thy house with burnt 
offerings : I will pay thee my vows, 

14 Which my lips have uttered, and my 
mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble. 

1 5 I will offer unto thee burnt sacri- 
fices of fatlings, with the incense of rams: 
I will offer bullocks with goats. 

16 Come and hear, all ye that fear 
God, and I will declare what he hath done 
for my soul. 

17 I cried unto him with my mouth, 
and he was extolled with my tongue. 



18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, 
the Lord will not hear me : 

19 But verily God hath heard me ; he 
hath attended to the voice of my prayer. 

20 Blessed be God, which hath not 
turned away my prayer, nor his mercy 
from me. 

Psalm 67 

21 GOD be merciful unto us, and bless 
us ; and cause his face to shine upon us ;

earth, thy saving health among all nations. 

23 Let the people praise thee, O God ; 
let all the people praise thee. 

24 O let the nations be glad and sing 
for joy : for thou shalt judge the people 
righteously, and govern the nations upon 
earth. 

25 Let the people praise thee, O God ; 
let all the people praise thee. 

26 Then shall the earth yield her in- 
crease ; and God, even our own God, 
shall bless us.

them away : as wax melteth before the 
fire, so let the wicked perish at the pres- 
ence of God. 

3 But let the righteous be glad ; let 
them rejoice before God : yea, let them 
exceedingly rejoice. 

4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his 
name : extol him that rideth upon the 
heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice 
before him. 

5 A father of the fatherless, and a 
judge of the widows, is God in his holy 
habitation.

6 God setteth the solitary in families : 
he bringeth out those which are bound 
with chains : but the rebellious dwell in 
a dry land. 

7 O God, when thou wentest forth be- 
fore thy people, when thou didst march 
through the wilderness ; 

8 The earth shook, the heavens also 
dropped at the presence of God : even 
Sinai itself was moved at the presence of 
God, the God of Israel. 

9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful 
rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine 
inheritance, when it was weary. 

10 Thy congregation hath dwelt there- 
in : thou, O God, hast prepared of thy 
goodness for the poor. 

1 1 The Lord gave the word : great 
was the company of those that pub- 
lished it. 

12 Kings of armies did flee apace : 
and she that tarried at home divided the 
spoil. 

13 Though ye have lain among the 
pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a 
dove covered with silver, and her feathers 
with yellow gold. 

14 When the Almighty scattered kings 
in it, it was white as snow in Salmon. 

15 The hill of God is as the hill of 
Bashan; a high hill as the hill of Bashan. 

16 Why leap ye, ye high hills ? this is 
the hill which God desireth to dwell in ; 
yea, the Lord will dwell in it for ever. 

17 The chariots of God are twenty 
thousand, even thousands of angels : the 
Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the 
holy place. 

18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou 
hast led captivity captive : thou hast re- 
ceived gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious 
also, that the Lord God might dwell 
among them. 

19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily 
loadeth us with benefits, even the God of 
our salvation. 



20 Thy God hath commanded thy 
strength : strengthen, O God, that which 
thou hast wrought for us. 

21 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem 
shall kings bring presents unto thee. 

22 Princes shall come out of Egypt ; 
Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands 
unto God. 

23 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the 
earth ; O sing praises unto the Lord ; 

24 To him that rideth upon the heavens 
of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth 
send out his voice, and that a mighty voice. 

25 Ascribe ye strength unto God : his 
excellency is over Israel, and his strength 
is in the clouds. 

26 O God, thou art terrible out of thy 
holy places : the God of Israel is he that 
giveth strength and power unto his peo- 
ple. Blessed be God.

will yet praise thee more and more. 

15 My mouth shall show forth thy 
righteousness and thy salvation all the 
day ; for I know not the numbers there- 
of. 

16 I will go in the strength of the 
Lord God : I will make mention of thy 
righteousness, even of thine only. 

17 O God, thou hast taught me from 
my youth : and hitherto have I declared 
thy wondrous works. 

18 Now also when I am old and gray- 
headed, O God, forsake me not ; until I 
have showed thy strength unto this gen- 
eration, and thy power to every one that 
is to come. 

19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is 
very high, who hast done great things : O 
God, who is like unto thee ! 

20 Thou, which hast showed me great 
and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, 
and shalt bring me up again from the 
depths of the earth. 

21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, 
and comfort me on every side. 

22 I will also praise thee with the 
psaltery, even thy truth, O my God : unto 
thee will I sing with the harp, O thou 
Holy One of Israel. 



23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I 
sing unto thee ; and my soul, which thou

Psalm 73 : 1-26 

1 TRULY God is good to Israel, even 
to such as are of a clean heart. 

2 But as for me, my feet were almost 
gone ; my steps had well nigh slipped. 

3 For I was envious at the foolish, 
when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 

4 For there are no bands in their 
death : but their strength is firm. 

5 They are not in trouble as other 
men ; neither are they plagued like other 
men. 

6 Therefore pride compasseth them 
about as a chain ; violence covereth them 
as a garment. 

7 Their eyes stand out with fatness : 
they have more than heart could wish. 

8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly 
concerning oppression : they speak loftily. 



9 They set their mouth against the 
heavens, and their tongue walketh through 
the earth. 

10 Therefore his people return hither : 
and waters of a full cup are wrung out to 
them. 

1 1 And they say, How doth God know? 
and is there knowledge in the Most High ? 

12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who 
prosper in the world ; they increase in 
riches. 

13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in 
vain, and washed my hands in innocency. 

14 For all the day long have I been 
plagued, and chastened every morning. 

15 If I say, I will speak thus ; behold, 
I should offend against the generation of 
thy children. 

x6 When I thought to know this, it 
was too painful for me ; 

17 Until I went into the sanctuary of 
God ; then understood I their end. 

18 Surely thou didst set them in slip- 
pery places : thou castedst them down 
into destruction, 

19 How are they brought into desola- 
tion, as in a moment ! they are utterly 
consumed with terrors. 

20 As a dream when one awaketh ; so, 
O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt 
despise their image. 

2 1 Thus my heart was grieved, and I 
was pricked in my reins. 

22 So foolish was I, and ignorant : I 
was as a beast before thee. 

23 Nevertheless I am continually with 
thee : thou hast holden me by my right 
hand. 

24 Thou shalt guide me with thy coun- 
sel, and afterward receive me to glory. 

25 Whom have I in heaven but thee ? 
and there is none upon earth that I desire 
besides thee.

God is the strength of my heart, and my 
portion for ever.

1 I CRIED unto God with my voice, 
even unto God with my voice ; and he 
gave ear unto me. 

2 In the day of my trouble I sought 
the Lord : my sore ran in the night, 
and ceased not : my soul refused to be 
comforted. 

3 I remembered God, and was troub- 
led : I complained, and my spirit was 
overwhelmed. 

4 Thou holdest mine eyes waking : I 
am so troubled that I cannot speak. 

5 I have considered the days of old, 
the years of ancient times. 

6 I call to remembrance my song in 
the night : I commune with mine own 
heart : and my spirit made diligent 
search. 

7 Will the Lord cast off for ever ? 
and will he be favorable no more ? 

8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever ? 
doth his promise fail for evermore ? 

9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious ?

waters saw thee ; they were afraid : the 
depths also were troubled. 



17 The clouds poured out water : the 
skies sent out a sound : thine arrows also 
went abroad.

ness round about thee ? 

9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea : 
when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest 
them. 

10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, 
as one that is slain ; thou hast scattered 
thine enemies with thy strong arm. 

ii The heavens are thine, the earth 
also is thine : as for the world and the 
fulness thereof, thou hast founded them. 

12 The north and the south thou hast 
created them : Tabor and Hermon shall 
rejoice in thy name. 

13 Thou hast a mighty arm : strong is 
thy hand, and high is thy right hand. 

14 Justice and judgment are the hab- 
itation of thy throne : mercy and truth 
shall go before thy face. 

1 5 Blessed is the people that know the 
joyful sound : they shall walk, O Lord, 
in the light of thy countenance. 

16 In thy name shall they rejoice all 
the day : and in thy righteousness shall 
they be exalted. 

17 For thou art the glory of their 
strength : and in thy favor our horn shall 
be exalted. 

18 For the Lord is our defence ; and 
the Holy One of Israel is our King. 

19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy 
Holy One, and saidst, I have laid help 
upon one that is mighty ; I have exalted 
one chosen out of the people. 



20 I have found David my servant ; 
with my holy oil have I anointed him : 

21 With whom my hand shall be es- 
tablished: mine arm also shall strengthen 
him. 

22 The enemy shall not exact upon 
him ; nor the son of wickedness afflict 
him. 

23 And I will beat down his foes before 
his face, and plague them that hate him. 

24 But my faithfulness and my mercy 
shall be with him : and in my name shall 
his horn be exalted. 

25 I will set his hand also in the sea, 
and his right hand in the rivers. 

26 He shall cry unto me, Thou art 
my Father, my God, and the Rock of 
my salvation. 

27 Also I will make him my firstborn, 
higher than the kings of the earth. 

28 My mercy will I keep for him for 
evermore, and my covenant shall stand 
fast with him. 

29 His seed also will I make to endure 
for ever, and his throne as the days of 
heaven. 

30 If his children forsake my law, and 
walk not in my judgments ; 

3 1 If they break my statutes, and keep 
not my commandments ; 

32 Then will I visit their transgression 
with the rod, and their iniquity with 
stripes. 

33 Nevertheless my loving-kindness 
will I not utterly take from him, nor 
suffer my faithfulness to fail. 

34 My covenant will I not break, nor 
alter the thing that is gone out of my 
lips. 

35 Once have I sworn by my holiness 
that I will not lie unto David. 

36 His seed shall endure for ever, 
and his throne as the sun before me. 

37 It shall be established for ever as 
the moon, and as a faithful witness in 
heaven.

Psalm 90 

1 LORD, thou hast been our dwelling- 
place in all generations. 

2 Before the mountains were brought 
forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth 
and the world, even from everlasting to 
everlasting, thou art God. 

3 Thou turnest man to destruction ; 
and sayest, Return, ye children of men. 

4 For a thousand years in thy sight 
are but as yesterday when it is past, and 
as a watch in the night. 

5 Thou earnest them away as with a 
flood ; they are as a sleep : in the morn- 
ing they are like grass which groweth up. 

6 In the morning it flourisheth, and 
groweth up ; in the evening it is cut 
down, and withereth. 

7 For we are consumed by thine anger, 
and by thy wrath are we troubled. 

8 Thou hast set our iniquities before 
thee, our secret sins in the light of thy 
countenance. 

9 For all our days are passed away in 
thy wrath : we spend our years as a tale 
that is told. 

10 The days of our years are three- 
score years and ten ; and if by reason of 
strength they be fourscore years, yet is 
their strength labor and sorrow ; for it 
is soon cut off, and we fly away. 

1 1 Who knoweth the power of thine 
anger ? even according to thy fear, so is 
thy wrath. 

12 So teach us to number our days, 
that wc may apply our hearts unto wisdom. 

13 Return, O Lord, how long ? and let 
it repent thee concerning thy servants. 

14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy ; 
that we may rejoice and be glad all our 
days. 

1 5 Make us glad according to the days 
wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the 
years wherein we have seen evil. 



16 Let thy work appear unto thy ser- 
vants, and thy glory unto their children. 

17 And let the beauty of the Lord our 
God be upon us : and establish thou the 
work of our hands upon us ; yea, the 
work of our hands establish thou it.

Psalm 91 

1 HE that dwelleth in the secret place 
of the Most High shall abide under the 
shadow of the Almighty. 

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my 
refuge and my fortress : my God ; in him 
will I trust. 

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the 
snare of the fowler, and from the noisome 
pestilence. 

4 He shall cover thee with his feath- 
ers, and under his wings shalt thou trust : 
his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the 
terror by night ; nor for the arrow that 
flieth by day ; 

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh 
in darkness ; nor for the destruction that 
wasteth at noonday. 

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and 
ten thousand at thy right hand ; but it 
shall not come nigh thee. 

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou be- 
hold and see the reward of the wicked. 

9 Because thou hast made the Lord, 
which is my refuge, even the Most High, 
thy habitation ; 

10 There shall no evil befall thee, 
neither shall any plague come nigh thy 
dwelling. 

1 1 For he shall give his angels charge 
over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 

12 They shall bear thee up in their 
hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a 
stone. 

1 3 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and 
adder : the young lion and the dragon 
shalt thou trample under feet.

Psalm 92 

1 IT is a good thing to give thanks 
unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto 
thy name, O Most High : 

2 To show forth thy loving-kindness in 
the morning, and thy faithfulness every 
night, 

3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, 
and upon the psaltery ; upon the harp 
with a solemn sound. 

4 For thou, Lord, hast made me glad 
through thy work : I will triumph in the 
works of thy hands. 

5 O Lord, how great are thy works ! 
and thy thoughts are very deep. 

6 A brutish man knoweth not ; neither 
doth a fool understand this. 

7 When the wicked spring as the grass, 
and when all the workers of iniquity do 
flourish ; it is that they shall be destroyed 
for ever : 

8 But thou, Lord, art most high for 
evermore. 

9 For, lo, thine enemies, O Lord, for, 
lo, thine enemies shall perish ; all the 
workers of iniquity shall be scattered. 

10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like 
the horn of a unicorn : I shall be anointed 
with fresh oil. 

1 1 Mine eye also shall see my desire 
on mine enemies, and mine ears shall 
hear my desire of the wicked that rise 
up against me. 

12 The righteous shall flourish like the 



palm tree : he shall grow like a cedar in 
Lebanon. 

1 3 Those that be planted in the house 
of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of 
our God. 

14 They shall still bring forth fruit in 
old age ; they shall be fat and flourishing ; 

1 5 To show that the Lord is upright : 
he is my rock, and there is no unright- 
eousness in him. 

Psalm 93 

16 THE Lord reigneth, he is clothed 
with majesty ; the Lord is clothed with 
strength, wherewith he hath girded him- 
self : the world also is stablished, that it 
cannot be moved. 

17 Thy throne is established of old: 
thou art from everlasting. 

18 The floods have lifted up, O Lord, 
the floods have lifted up their voice ; the 
floods lift up their waves. 

19 The Lord on high is mightier than 
the noise of many waters, yea, than the 
mighty waves of the sea.

holiness becometh thine house, O Lord,

the earth : the strength of the hills is his

13 The Lord is merciful and gracious, 
slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. 

14 He will not always chide : neither 
will he keep his anger for ever. 

15 He hath not dealt with us after 
our sins ; nor rewarded us according to 
our iniquities. 

16 For as the heaven is high above 
the earth, so great is his mercy toward 
them that fear him. 

17 As far as the east is from the west, 
so far hath he removed our transgressions 
from us. 

18 Like as a father pitieth his children, 
so the Lord pitieth them that fear him. 

19 For he knoweth our frame ; he 
remembereth that we are dust. 

20 As for man, his days are as grass : 
as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. 

21 For the wind passeth over it, and 
it is gone ; and the place thereof shall

everlasting to everlasting upon them that 
fear him, and his righteousness unto chil-

heavens like a curtain : 

3 Who layeth the beams of his cham- 
bers in the waters : who maketh the 
clouds his chariot : who walketh upon 
the wings of the wind : 

4 Who maketh his angels spirits ; his 
ministers a flaming fire : 

5 Who laid the foundations of the 
earth, that it should not be removed for 
ever. 

6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as 
with a garment : the waters stood above 
the mountains. 

7 At thy rebuke they fled ; at the voice 
of thy thunder they hasted away. 

8 They go up by the mountains ; they 
go down by the valleys unto the place 
which thou hast founded for them. 

9 Thou hast set a bound that they may 
not pass over ; that they turn not again 
to cover the earth. 

10 He sendeth the springs into the 
valleys, which run among the hills. 

1 1 They give drink to every beast of 
the field : the wild asses quench their 
thirst. 

12 By them shall the fowls of the 
heaven have their habitation, which sing 
among the branches. 

13 He watereth the hills from his 
chambers : the earth is satisfied with the 
fruit of thy works. 

14 He causeth the grass to grow for 
the cattle, and herb for the service of 
man : that he may bring forth food out 
of the earth ; 

15 And wine that maketh glad the 
heart of man, and oil to make his face to 
shine, and bread which strengtheneth 
man's heart.

as for the stork, the fir trees are her 
house. 

18 The high hills are a refuge for the

20 Thou makest darkness, and it is 
night : wherein all the beasts of the 
forest do creep forth. 

21 The young lions roar after their 
prey, and seek their meat from God. 

22 The sun ariseth, they gather them- 
selves together, and lay them down in

24 O Lord, how manifold are thy 
works ! in wisdom hast thou made them 
all : the earth is full of thy riches. 

25 So is this great and wide sea, where- 
in are things creeping innumerable, both 
small and great beasts. 

26 There go the ships : there is that 
leviathan, whom thou hast made to play 
therein. 

27 These wait all upon thee ; that 
thou mayest give them their meat in due 
season. 

28 That thou givest them they gather : 
thou openest thine hand, they are filled 
with good. 

29 Thou hidest thy face, they are 
troubled : thou takest away their breath, 
they die, and return to their dust. 

30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they 
are created : and thou renewest the face 
of the earth. 

31 The glory of the Lord shall endure 
for ever : the Lord shall rejoice in his 
works. 

32 He looketh on the earth, and it 
trembleth : he toucheth the hills, and 
they smoke. 

33 I will sing unto the Lord as long 
as I live : I will sing praise to my God 
while I have my being.

standing water, and dry ground into 
watersprings. 

14 And there he maketh the hungry

for habitation ; 

1 5 And sow the fields, and plant vine- 
yards, which may yield fruits of increase.

are multiplied greatly ; and suffereth not 
their cattle to decrease.

brought low through oppression, afflic-

and causeth them to wander in the wil-

Psalm hi 

8 PRAISE ye the Lord. I will praise 
the Lord with my whole heart, in the

9 The works of the Lord are great, 
sought out of all them that have pleasure 
therein. 

10 His work is honorable and glori- 
ous : and his righteousness endureth for 
ever. 

1 1 He hath made his wonderful works 
to be remembered : the Lord is gracious 
and full of compassion. 

12 He hath given meat unto them 
that fear him : he will ever be mindful 
of his covenant. 

13 He hath showed his people the 
power of his works, that he may give 
them the heritage of the heathen. 

14 The works of his hands are verity 
and judgment ; all his commandments 
are sure. 

1 5 They stand fast for ever and ever, 
and are done in truth and uprightness. 
16 He sent redemption unto his peo- 



ple : he hath commanded his covenant 
for ever : holy and reverend is his name. 

17 The fear of the Lord is the begin- 
ning of wisdom : a good understanding 
have all they that do his commandments: 
his praise endureth for ever. 

Psalm i i 2 

18 PRAISE ye the Lord. Blessed is

19 His seed shall be mighty upon 
earth : the generation of the upright 
shall be blessed. 

20 Wealth and riches shall be in his 
house : and his righteousness endureth 
for ever. 

21 Unto the upright there ariseth light 
in the darkness : he is gracious, and full 
of compassion, and righteous. 

22 A good man showeth favor, and 
lendeth : he will guide his affairs with 
discretion. 

23 Surely he shall not be moved for 
ever : the righteous shall be in everlast- 
ing remembrance. 

24 He shall not be afraid of evil tid- 
ings : his heart is fixed, trusting in the 
Lord. 

25 His heart is established, he shall 
not be afraid, until he see his desire 
upon his enemies. 

26 He hath dispersed, he hath given 
to the poor ; his righteousness endureth 
for ever ; his horn shall be exalted with 
honor. 

27 The wicked shall see it, and be 
grieved : he shall gnash with his teeth, 
and melt away ; the desire of the wicked 
shall perish.

2 1 The idols of the heathen are silver 
and gold, the work of men's hands. 

22 They have mouths, but they speak 
not ; eyes have they, but they see not ; 

23 They have ears, but they hear not ; 
neither is there any breath in their mouths. 

24 They that make them are like unto 
them : so is every one that trusteth in 
them. 

25 Bless the Lord, O house of Israel : 
bless the Lord, O house of Aaron : 

26 Bless the Lord, O house of Levi : 
ye that fear the Lord, bless the Lord. 

27 Blessed be the Lord out of Zion, 
which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye 
the Lord.

Psalm 137 : 1-6 

14 BY the rivers of Babylon, there we 
sat down, yea, we wept, when we remem- 
bered Zion. 

1 5 We hanged our harps upon the 
willows in the midst thereof. 

16 For there they that carried us away 
captive required of us a song ; and they 
that wasted us required of us mirth, say- 
ing, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. 

17 How shall we sing the Lord's song 
in a strange land ? 

18 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let 
my right hand forget her cunning. 

19 If I do not remember thee, let my 
tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth ; 
if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief 
joy. 

Psalm 138 

20 I WILL praise thee with my whole 
heart : before the gods will I sing praise 
unto thee. 

21 I will worship toward thy holy 
temple, and praise thy name for thy lov- 
ing-kindness and for thy truth : for thou 
hast magnified thy word above all thy 
name. 

22 In the day when I cried thou 
answeredst me, and strengthenedst me 
with strength in my soul. 

23 All the kings of the earth shall

praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the 
words of thy mouth. 

24 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of 
the Lord : for great is the glory of the 
Lord. 

25 Though the Lord be high, yet hath 
he respect unto the lowly : but the proud 
he knoweth afar off. 

26 Though I walk in the midst of 
trouble, thou wilt revive me : thou shalt 
stretch forth thine hand against the wrath 
of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall 
save me. 

27 The Lord will perfect that which 
concerneth me : thy mercy, O Lord, en- 
dureth for ever : forsake not the works of 
thine own hands.

Psalm 139 : 1-12, 14-24 

1 O LORD, thou hast searched me, 
and known me. 

2 Thou knowest my downsitting and 
mine uprising ; thou understandest my 
thought afar off. 

3 Thou compassest my path and my 
lying down, and art acquainted with all 
my ways. 

4 For there is not a word in my tongue, 
but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it alto- 
gether. 

5 Thou hast beset me behind and 
before, and laid thine hand upon me. 

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for 
me ; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. 

7 . Whither shall I go from thy Spirit ? 
or whither shall I flee from thy presence ? 

8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art 
there : if I make my bed in hell, behold, 
thou art there. 

9 If I take the wings of the morning, 
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the 
sea; 

10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, 
and thy right hand shall hold me. 

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall 



cover me ; even the night shall be light 
about me. 

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from 
thee ; but the night shineth as the day : 
the darkness and the light are both alike 
to thee. 

1 3 I will praise thee ; for I am fear- 
fully and wonderfully made : marvellous 
are thy works ; and that my soul knoweth 
right well. 

14 My substance was not hid from 
thee, when I was made in secret, and 
curiously wrought in the lowest parts of 
the earth. 

1 5 Thine eyes did see my substance, 
yet being unperfect ; and in thy book all 
my members were written, which in con- 
tinuance were fashioned, when as yet 
there was none of them. 

16 How precious also are thy thoughts 
unto me, O God ! how great is the sum 
of them ! 

17 If I should count them, they are 
more in number than the sand : when I 
awake, I am still with thee. 

18 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, 
O God : depart from me therefore, ye 
bloody men. 

19 For they speak against thee wick- 
edly, and thine enemies take thy name in 
vain. 

20 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that 
hate thee ? and am not I grieved with 
those that rise up against thee ? 

2 1 I hate them with perfect hatred : I 
count them mine enemies. 

22 Search me, O God, and know my 
heart : try me, and know my thoughts : 

23 And see if there be any wicked way 
in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

2 Let my prayer be set forth before

Psalm 142 

4 I CRIED unto the Lord with my 
voice ; with my voice unto the Lord did 
I make my supplication. 

5 I poured out my complaint before 
him ; I showed before him my trouble. 

6 When my spirit was overwhelmed 
within me, then thou knewest my path. 
In the way wherein I walked have they 
privily laid a snare for me. 

7 I looked on my right hand, and 
beheld, but there was no man that would 
know me : refuge failed me ; no man 
cared for my soul. 

8 I cried unto thee, O Lord : I said, 
Thou art my refuge and my portion in the 
land of the living. 

9 Attend unto my cry ; for I am brought 
very low : deliver me from my persecutors; 
for they are stronger than I. 

10 Bring my soul out of prison, that I 
may praise thy name : the righteous shall 
compass me about ; for thou shalt deal 
bountifully with me. 

Psalm 143 : 1-11 

11 HEAR my prayer, O Lord, give 
ear to my supplications : in thy faithful- 
ness answer me, and in thy righteousness. 

12 And enter not into judgment with 
thy servant : for in thy sight shall no man 
living be justified. 

13 For the enemy hath persecuted my 
soul ; he hath smitten my life down to 
the ground ; he hath made me to dwell 
in darkness, as those that have been long 
dead. 

14 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed 
within me ; my heart within me is deso- 
late. 



1 5 I remember the days of old ; I 
meditate on all thy works ; I muse on 
the work of thy hands. 

1 6 I stretch forth my hands unto thee: 
my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty 
land. 

17 Hear me speedily, O Lord; my 
spirit faileth : hide not thy face from me, 
lest I be like unto them that go down 
into the pit. 

18 Cause me to hear thy loving-kind- 
ness in the morning ; for in thee do I 
trust : cause me to know the way wherein 
I should walk ; for I lift up my soul unto 
thee. 

19 Deliver me, O Lord, from mine 
enemies : I flee unto thee to hide me. 

20 Teach me to do thy will ; for thou 
art my God : thy Spirit is good ; lead me 
into the land of uprightness. 

21 Quicken me, O Lord, for thy 
name' s sake : for thy righteousness' sake 
bring my soul out of trouble.

God : upon a psaltery and an instrument 
often strings will I sing praises unto thee.

kings : who delivereth David his servant 
from the hurtful sword. 

1 1 Rid me, and deliver me from the 
hand of strange children, whose mouth 
speaketh vanity, and their right hand is 
a right hand of falsehood : 

12 That our sons may be as plants 
grown up in their youth ; that our daugh-

after the similitude of a palace : 

13 That our garners may be full, 
affording all manner of store ; that our 
sheep may bring forth thousands and ten 
thousands in our streets :

labor ; that there be no breaking in, nor

In our streets.

whose God is the Lord. 

Psalm 146 

16 PRAISE ye the Lord. Praise the

Israel. 

3 He healeth the broken in heart, and

clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, 
who maketh grass to grow upon the
